Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2009 Week 14 Hansard (19 November) . . Page.. 5373..


MR RATTENBURY (continuing):

I think this speaks to the point that Mrs Dunne was also just referring to around the need to ensure that the affected industry is fully engaged in these sorts of discussions. The amendment does clarify the existing solution where the original intent was for no casino staff to accept tips. If in clarifying this through the amendment there is short-term confusion created, the Greens would then ask the Attorney-General to take steps to explain the situation to casino staff so that nobody inadvertently breaches the new laws. The Greens will monitor if this specific amendment causes any unintended confusion.

In conclusion, the Greens support this bill. It makes for a better statute book where the intent of what we are passing in the Assembly continues to be clearly expressed in legislation.

MR CORBELL (Molonglo-Attorney-General, Minister for the Environment, Climate Change and Water, Minister for Energy and Minister for Police and Emergency Services) (5.41), in reply: I would like to thank members for their support of the bill.
