Mrs ARMITAGE ( Launceston ) - I will be supporting the possibility that this goes to committee B. From what I heard this morning there was some confusion and many issues. I take on board the comments from the honourable member for Mersey that people have had ample oppo...

Mrs ARMITAGE (Launceston) - I take this opportunity to commend the member for Murchison on her second reading speech. It was delivered with compassion and sincerity. If I could truly believe that passing this bill would alleviate all the pain, suffering and discriminat...

Mrs ARMITAGE ( Launceston ) - I find this issue we have before us very difficult. I agree that the previous bill was poorly drafted and appreciate that this bill is stronger with the subsequent amendments from the committee. I must commend my fellow Legislative Council...

Mrs ARMITAGE ( Launceston ) - I, too, find this quite difficult legislation to deal with because you can look at both sides. I would also like to read a couple of parts that I do not think have been read into what we have before us. Initially, I received correspondence...

Mrs ARMITAGE ( Launceston ) - I will only make a short contribution. I support the intent and the sentiment of this. Obviously smoking is bad for you, but what can we do to help people, not just smokers, but non-smokers too? I agree with the member for Rosevears that t...

Mrs ARMITAGE ( Launceston ) - Madam President, I agree with the member for Mersey. I am quite comfortable with an in camera briefing. From my perspective, I would like to know what is in the URS because I believe I am making the decision and I want to know the informat...

Mrs ARMITAGE (Launceston) - Madam President, my special interest speech today regards the Launceston School for Seniors. For the past 31 years the Launceston School for Seniors has been a vital part of the community. The idea was conceived by a local adult education of...

Mrs ARMITAGE (Launceston) - Madam President, I too rise to make a very brief contribution. I agree with the other members who have spoken. I believe that we should not be involved in any way in setting our own salaries. It should be kept at arm's length. What I am disa...
