Justice and Community Safety-Standing Committee
Alteration to reporting date
MR OSBORNE (10.30): I seek leave to move a motion to alter the reporting date for the Standing Committee on Justice and Community Safety inquiry into the Executive Documents Release Bill 2000.
MR OSBORNE: I move:
That the resolution of the Assembly of 9 March 2000 (as amended on 29 March 2001) which referred the Executive Documents Release Bill 2000 to the Standing Committee on Justice and Community Safety for inquiry and report be amended by omitting in paragraph (1) the words "by 13 June 2001" and substituting in lieu thereof the words "by 19 June 2001".
Mr Speaker, the committee received the government's submission only a short time ago, and it has caused this delay. We would like to have had the report done today, but the biggest and most important submission, that from the government, was delivered to us only a short time ago. We will have the report ready for next Tuesday.
Question resolved in the affirmative.
