Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2001 Week 2 Hansard (27 February) . . Page.. 310..

MR STEFANIAK (continuing):

From the VOCAL letter, it quite obvious that the security people there are doing a very good job, but they point to some concerns there. I think the government legislation addresses those concerns and I think it is always very prudent to put in proper legislation and give people clear, well defined and necessary powers to do their job properly so that situations can be nipped in the bud before they get serious.

I would hate to see us end up with either no legislation covering this or legislation covering it that does not give relevant powers where they are needed, which could see someone seriously hurt in future. I am sure that is not the intention of members. I urge members to be very careful when we get to the detail stage in relation to this matter.

Question put:

That this bill be agreed to in principle.

The Assembly voted-

		Ayes 9				Noes 7

	Mrs Burke	Mr Moore	Mr Berry	Ms Tucker
	Mr Cornwell	Mr Rugendyke	Mr Corbell	Mr Wood

Question so resolved in the affirmative.

Bill agreed to in principle.

Detail stage

Legislation (Access and Operation) Bill 2000

[Cognate bill:

Legislation (Access and Operation) (Consequential Provisions) Bill 2000]

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

That this bill be agreed to in principle.

MR SPEAKER: Is it the wish of the Assembly that this bill be debated concurrently with the Legislation (Access and Operation) (Consequential Provisions) Bill 2000? There being no objection, that course be followed. I remind members that in debating order of the day No 2 they may also address their remarks to order of the day No 3.
