OATHS AND AFFIRMATIONS (AMENDMENT) BILL 1998

MS TUCKER (11.10): I present the Oaths and Affirmations (Amendment) Bill 1998.

Title read by Clerk.

MS TUCKER: I move:

That this Bill be agreed to in principle.

Mr Speaker, I have already spoken to this as well.

Debate (on motion by Mr Stefaniak) adjourned.

SUPREME COURT (AMENDMENT) BILL (NO. 2) 1998

MS TUCKER (11.11): I present the Supreme Court (Amendment) Bill (No. 2) 1998.

Title read by Clerk.

MS TUCKER: I move:

That this Bill be agreed to in principle.

As before, I have spoken to it.

Debate (on motion by Mr Stefaniak) adjourned.

MOTOR TRAFFIC (AMENDMENT) BILL (NO. 3) 1998

MS TUCKER (11.11): Mr Speaker, I present the Motor Traffic (Amendment) Bill (No. 3) 1998.

Title read by Clerk.

MS TUCKER: I move:

That this Bill be agreed to in principle.

Mr Speaker, this Bill amends the Motor Traffic Act to reduce the general speed limit in Canberra from 60 kilometres per hour to 50 kilometres per hour. Members of the last Assembly will recall that I tabled the same Bill last year but, unfortunately, it was not supported by the majority of the Assembly at that time. I believe, however, that the evidence is increasing that this change to the speed limit has major road safety benefits.
