Justice and Community Safety—Standing Committee
MRS DUNNE (Ginninderra) (5.23): Mr Assistant Speaker, in accordance with temporary order 254A, as the chair of the Standing Committee on Justice and Community Safety, I ask the Attorney-General for an explanation for the lateness of the government's response to the committee's report No 2 into the Crimes (Murder) Amendment Bill 2008. In doing so I note that the committee reported on 27 August 2009 and the government responded on 15 September 2009 to one of the committee's recommendations. The government undertook to respond to the remaining recommendations within the time frame, but to date this has not occurred. I therefore seek an explanation.
MR CORBELL (Molonglo—Attorney-General, Minister for the Environment, Climate Change and Water, Minister for Energy and Minister for Police and Emergency Services) (5.23): I will have to take the inquiry on notice, Mr Assistant Speaker. I simply do not have the particulars of the matter before me at this time. I will endeavour to provide an answer to the Assembly as soon as possible.
MRS DUNNE (Ginninderra) (5.24): In accordance with temporary order 254A, I move:
That this Assembly notes the failure of the Attorney-General to supply an explanation for his failing to provide a Government response to Report 2 of the Standing Committee on Justice and Community Safety which was due by 27 November 2009.
That Mrs Dunne's motion be agreed to.
The Assembly voted—
Ayes 8: Ms Bresnan Mr Coe Mrs Dunne Mr Hanson Ms Hunter Ms Le Couteur Mr Rattenbury Mr Seselja
Noes 5: Mr Barr Mr Corbell Ms Gallagher Mr Hargreaves Mr Stanhope
Question so resolved in the affirmative.
