Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 1995 Week 5 Hansard (24 August) . . Page.. 1407..
MS TUCKER (continuing):
Mr Speaker, I should point out a typing error in the report which we failed to pick up at the time of editing. This typo, unfortunately, quite significantly changes the meaning of one of the recommendations regarding community consultation. I will read out the recommendation. It says:
The Committee wishes to compliment the work being done by government in this area.
Maybe we will wish to do that in the near future or the distant future, but at this point the word should have been "complement", not "compliment". I am pleased to inform the Assembly that some cutting and pasting has rectified this error.
Question resolved in the affirmative.
MR OSBORNE: I present Report No. 9 of 1995 of the Standing Committee on Scrutiny of Bills and Subordinate Legislation, and I ask for leave to make a brief statement on the report.
MR OSBORNE: Report No. 9 of 1995 contains the committee's comments on one Bill. I commend the report to the Assembly.
MR WHITECROSS: I seek leave of the Assembly to present a report on a conference.
MR WHITECROSS: I present the report of the Standing Committee on Scrutiny of Bills and Subordinate Legislation on the Delegated Legislation Conference and the Scrutiny of Bills Conference which was held in Darwin from 5 to 7 July 1995. I also present, pursuant to standing order 246B, Discussion Paper No. 1 by the committee entitled "Scrutiny of National Scheme Legislation and the Desirability of Uniform Scrutiny Principles", and I ask for leave to make a brief statement on the papers.
