STATUTE LAW AMENDMENT BILL 2000

Debate resumed from 30 March 2000, on motion by Mr Humphries:

That this bill be agreed to in principle.

MR STANHOPE (Leader of the Opposition) (9.57): Mr Speaker, the Labor Party is supporting the Statute Law Amendment Bill 2000. The bill aims to improve the statue book by correcting errors, replacing out - of - date references and repealing legislation of apparently no further use. It continues the program of reforming the manner of drafting legislation and developing a simpler, more coherent and accessible statute book for the territory. It is one of those fairly standard omnibus statute law amendment bills which are generally quite mind numbing when one peruses them or seeks to read through them. The legislation does, however, contain a number of significant changes and improvements in relation to legislative drafting. It is an essential piece of legislation and the Labor Party is pleased to support it.

MR HUMPHRIES (Chief Minister, Minister for Community Affairs, Attorney - General and Treasurer) (9.58), in reply: Mr Speaker, I thank the opposition for its support.

Question resolved in the affirmative.

Bill agreed to in principle.

Detail Stage

Bill, by leave, taken as a whole.

MR HUMPHRIES (Chief Minister, Minister for Community Affairs, Attorney - General and Treasurer) (9.59): Mr Speaker, I seek leave to move two minor amendments circulated in my name together.

Leave granted.
