Justice and Community Safety-Standing Committee
Scrutiny Report No 12 of 2001 and statement
MR HARGREAVES: I ask for leave to present Scrutiny Report No 12 and to make a brief statement.
MR HARGREAVES: I present the following report:
Justice and Community Safety-Standing Committee (incorporating the duties of a Scrutiny of Bills and Subordinate Legislation Committee)-Scrutiny Report No 12 of 2001, dated August 2001.
This report contains the committee's comments on 14 bills and 116 subordinate laws. I would like to comment on a couple of parts of that to draw members' attention to it because it is a reasonably significant, in-depth report.
Firstly, the report comments on the Cooperatives Bill and makes significant adverse comment. It talks about the inadequacy of the explanatory memoranda of both the 2000 bill and the 2001 bill. Over the last three years the inadequacy of explanatory memoranda have been a reasonably recurrent theme. We point that out so that ministers can advise the officers compiling these things to lift their game a little.
