Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2014 Week 3 Hansard (10 April) . . Page.. 957..


MR SMYTH (Brindabella) (12.27): I will be opposing the clause. Again, in 40(2) it says:

The decision is final and binding for this Act and any court proceeding under this Act.

I am always open to the consideration that things should be reviewed in another area.

Clause 40 agreed to.

Clause 41 agreed to.

Clause 42.

MR SMYTH (Brindabella) (12.28): I move amendment No 7 circulated in my name [see schedule 1 at page 1007].

Accepting that a previous amendment did not get up, this is perhaps a last-ditch attempt before I get to No 10 to allow reasonable legal costs to be provided to an injured person so that they can defend themselves or seek what they wish to receive to best help them in their recovery and in their future life.

MR BARR (Molonglo—Deputy Chief Minister, Treasurer, Minister for Economic Development, Minister for Sport and Recreation, Minister for Tourism and Events and Minister for Community Services) (12.28): For the reasons I outlined earlier, the government will not be supporting this amendment.

Amendment negatived.

Clause 42 agreed to.

Clauses 43 and 44, by leave, taken together and agreed to.

Debate interrupted in accordance with standing order 74 and the resumption of the debate made an order of the day for a later hour.

Sitting suspended from 12.29 to 2.30 pm.

Ministerial arrangements

MR BARR (Molonglo—Deputy Chief Minister, Treasurer, Minister for Economic Development, Minister for Sport and Recreation, Minister for Tourism and Events and Minister for Community Services): I welcome Minister Burch back to question time. I formally advise that the Chief Minister is absent again today and I will take questions in her portfolios.
