Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2012 Week 1 Hansard (14 February) . . Page.. 75..
Other bills which will adopt laws as agreed at a national level include the Electronic Transactions Amendment Bill 2012, which will clarify the traditional rules on contract formation to address the needs of electronic commerce and modernise the territory's laws to reflect internationally recognised standards and enhance cross-border online commerce.
The Fair Trading (Gift Cards) Bill 2012 will address consumer affairs issues associated with unclaimed gift cards to ensure that consumers get a fair deal from gift cards.
Notwithstanding this extensive program, the government will also introduce a number of routine bills such as the Statute Law Amendment Bill and the planning and building and environment legislation amendment bills.
In addition, central to the government's legislative and financial agenda for the upcoming financial year, there will be the 2012-13 appropriation bill. This bill provides appropriation to administrative units for the 2012-13 financial year. It will be presented in June together with the supporting budget papers.
I commend the 2012 legislation program to the Assembly.
