Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2002 Week 9 Hansard (20 August) . . Page.. 2487..


MR WOOD (continuing):

The government amendments also clarify the definition of written-off vehicle. We are confident that the control, use and disclosure of images will fully conform with the requirements of the act, and the Privacy Commissioner, I believe, supports those amendments.

Yes, we are concerned. Every collection of data is under scrutiny. We have consulted with the Privacy Commissioner and we have paid attention to our own Legislative Assembly committee on this issue, so I think your support for this bill is justified.

Question resolved in the affirmative.

Bill agreed to in principle.

Detail stage

Clauses 1 to 3, by leave, taken together and agreed to.

Clause 4.

MR WOOD (Minister for Urban Services, Minister for the Arts and Minister for Disability, Housing and Community Services) (5.18): Mr Speaker, I ask for leave to move amendments 1 and 2 circulated in my name together.

Leave granted.

MR WOOD: Mr Speaker, I move amendments 1 and 2 circulated in my name together [see schedule 1 at page 2493].

Proposed new section 33D includes a note stating that access to photographs and signatures may be sought under the Freedom of Information Act. This has been inserted as clarification following a point raised by our Standing Committee on Legal Affairs.

Proposed new section 33E requires the authority to ensure photographs and signatures are kept secure. This has been inserted as clarification following a point raised by the Standing Committee on Legal Affairs also. The previous similarity between the headwords of proposed section 33D (1) and the text of the proposed section 33E (1) was unhelpful, and we believe we have fixed that problem.

Amendments agreed to.

Clause 4, as amended, agreed to.

Clauses 5 to 12, by leave, taken together and agreed to.

Clause 13.

MR WOOD (Minister for Urban Services, Minister for the Arts and Minister for Disability, Housing and Community Services) (5.21): I ask for leave to move amendments 3 and 4 circulated in my name together.
