Legislative Assembly for the ACT: Week 8 Hansard (3 August) . . Page.. 3376..


MR WOOD (continuing):

facilitate the issuing of infringement notices to the registered operator of a vehicle for vehicle-related offences such as where litter is thrown from a vehicle. Section 120 of the Magistrates Courts Act is amended by the insertion of the new subsection which clarifies that situation.

Amendment agreed to.

MR WOOD (Minister for Disability, Housing and Community Services, Minister for Urban Services, Minister for Police and Emergency Services, Minister for Arts and Heritage, and Acting Minister for Health) (5.47): Mr Speaker, I move amendment No 5 circulated in my name, which inserts a new amendment 1.1A to schedule 1 [see schedule 2 at page 3380]. I think these amendments we are dealing with now are of a technical nature and move the new definition of vehicle-related offences from section 131A of the Magistrates Court Act to section 117.

This amendment is necessary because, had the definition remained in section 131A, it would have applied only to division 8.2A. The definition has a wider application. The amendments through to amendment No 6 are doing that job.

Amendment agreed to.

MR WOOD (Minister for Disability, Housing and Community Services, Minister for Urban Services, Minister for Police and Emergency Services, Minister for Arts and Heritage, and Acting Minister for Health) (5.48): I move amendment No 6 circulated in my name [see schedule 2 at page 3380]. I have explained my reason for that, which we all fully understand.

Amendment agreed to.

Schedule 1, as amended, agreed to.

Dictionary agreed to.

Title agreed to.

Bill, as amended, agreed to.

Adjournment

Motion (by Mr Wood ) proposed:

That the Assembly do now adjourn.

National Missing Persons Week

MR SMYTH (Leader of the Opposition) (5.49): I wish to bring to the attention of members that this week is National Missing Persons Week. It is normally celebrated in the first week of August each year. This year it runs from Sunday, 1 August, to 7 August. The theme is pleas-a play on words, plea-missing: the right to know. And what this year's theme highlights is that many people choose to go missing, and many people do
