MR SPEAKER: Thank you.

MR HIRD: We are asking the Assembly to order that. Is there any more? No? She has gone!

MR SPEAKER: You are asking the Assembly to give the committee the approval that standing order 246 requires. Is that correct?

MR HIRD: Yes, that is correct, Mr Speaker.

MR SPEAKER: Thank you. Do members understand what we are talking about here? Thank you.

Question resolved in the affirmative.

Order of the day-postponement

MR BERRY (5.50): Mr Speaker, I seek leave to move that so much of standing orders be suspended as would prevent me from moving a motion to reverse the order of orders of the day 3 and 4.

Leave granted.

MR BERRY: Thank you. I move:

That order of the day No 3, Executive business, relating to the Court Security Bill 2000 be postponed until after consideration of order of the day No 4, Executive business.

Question resolved in the affirmative.

Electronic Transactions Bill 2000

Debate resumed from 18 October 2000, on motion by Mr Humphries:

That this bill be agreed to in principle.

MR STANHOPE (Leader of the Opposition) (5.51): Just by way of explanation, Mr Speaker, the Labor Party is happy to support this bill, whereas we had anticipated a debate on the Court Security Bill. I understand there is some suggestion that we might be rising shortly. I think this is a matter that can be dealt with quite quickly.

Mr Stefaniak: Yes, it can be. This is sensible.

MR STANHOPE: The then Attorney-General introduced this bill on 18 October 2000. In his introductory speech the Attorney said that the bill adopts a minimalist approach, yet the bill is comprehensive in ensuring that all electronic transactions are valid in law if the bill is complied with.
