Declaration of members' private interests
MRS DUNNE (Ginninderra) (11.25): I move:
That the resolution of the Assembly of 7 April 1992, as amended 27 August 1998, relating to the Declaration of Private Interests of Members, be amended by omitting the words in paragraph (1) "in the form as presented to the Assembly this day"and substituting "in the form as presented to the Assembly on 17 March 2005.".
This is one of a number of small items that were discussed by the Standing Committee on Administration and Procedure and relate to the workings and mechanics of the Assembly. This one refers to minor changes to the declaration of private interests of members form and covers issues such as the removal on page 3 of a reference to the Companies Act and replaces it with Corporations Law, in keeping with the House of Representatives explanatory note.
It also includes an explanatory note for section 3 that members are not required to list the address of their principal place of residence, which is in accordance with the Speaker's statement of May 1992. Further to that, it amends a new pro forma at the end of the statement on page 10 for the notification of alteration of members' interests, along with noting a provision for Assembly accrued frequent flyer points. There is currently no pro forma to allow for this alteration and we all, from time to time, acquire frequent flyer points as a result of our work in the Assembly, and they should be noted. I commend the motion to the Assembly.
Question resolved in the affirmative.
MRS DUNNE (Ginninderra) (11.28): I move:
That the resolution of the Assembly of 7 March 2002 relating to Broadcasting guidelines be amended by omitting section (A) paragraphs (1) to (3) and substituting the following:
(A) Pursuant to section 5 (2) of the Legislative Assembly (Broadcasting) Act 2001, the Legislative Assembly agrees to the following guidelines for the broadcasting of Assembly and committee proceedings.
