Debate resumed from 19 August 2008.
MR CORBELL (Molonglo—Attorney-General, Minister for Police and Emergency Services) (5.59): I seek leave to move amendments Nos 1 to 26 circulated in my name together.
MR CORBELL: I move amendments Nos 1 to 26 circulated in my name together [see schedule 1 at page 3399] and table a supplementary explanatory statement.
These amendments, as I indicated to members yesterday, deal with a range of matters raised by the scrutiny of bills committee in its comments on this set of bills. They also deal with a number of other matters that have been raised by the current President of the Administrative Appeals Tribunal, Mr Peedom, who has identified a range of technical and procedural matters that should be clarified ahead of the implementation of the new Civil and Administrative Tribunal. I commend those amendments to members.
