COMPLETED AT THE EARLIEST REASONABLE TIME WITHOUT PLACING EXCESSIVE DEMANDS ON THE BUDGET. IN CLOSING, MR SPEAKER, I CLEARLY RECALL THE OPTIMISM EXPRESSED BY THE LEADER OF THE OPPOSITION FOR THE EAST ARM PORT DEVELOPMENT IN HIS ELECTIONEERING PRIOR TO THE JUNE 1994 ELECTIONS. I TRUST THIS STATEMENT OF THE GOVERNMENT'S CLEAR INTENT SERVES TO REINFORCE THAT OPTIMISM AND THAT THE PROJECT CONTINUES TO RECEIVE THE WHOLEHEARTED SUPPORT OF THE OPPOSITION. CONSTRUCTION OF THE NEW PORT FACILITIES, MR SPEAKER, UNDERPINS MANY OF THE CLP GOVERNMENTS ELECTION COMMITMENTS AND SHOWS THAT WE INTEND TO KEEP OUR PROMISES TO TERRITORIANS. MR SPEAKER, I COMMEND THIS PROJECT TO HONOURABLE MEMBERS AS ONE OF THE MOST EXCITING TO BE UNDERTAKEN IN THE TERRITORY THIS DECADE. ITS IMPORTANCE TO OUR FUTURE ECONOMIC AND SOCIAL DEVELOPMENT IS PARAMOUNT AND DESERVES THE UNREMITTING SUPPORT OF ALL TERRITORIANS. I MOVE THIS STATEMENT BE NOTED.
