Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2015 Week 7 Hansard (4 June) . .

Page.. 2132..

Amendment negatived.

MS LAWDER (Brindabella) (6.09): I move amendment No 12 circulated in my name [see schedule 7 at page 2147].

This relates to a new section 352V(3) which enables the director-general to include anything in the organisation's register that she or he considers is in the public interest. This promotes the protection of children and young people as the paramount consideration.

MR GENTLEMAN (Brindabella—Minister for Planning, Minister for Roads and Parking, Minister for Workplace Safety and Industrial Relations, Minister for Children and Young People and Minister for Ageing) (6.09): The government agrees to this amendment. The amendment relates to changing the relevant wording with respect to "other information that could be put in the public register" to "information that is in the public interest".

Amendment agreed to.

MS LAWDER (Brindabella) (6.10): I am sorry, Madam Speaker. Can I ask that we go back to consider—

MADAM SPEAKER: No; we have to vote on it and then we can reconsider it. If we vote on the question that clause 8, as amended, be agreed to, then we can go back to reconsider it.

Clause 8, as amended, agreed to.

Clause 8, as amended—reconsideration.

MS LAWDER (Brindabella) (6.10): Madam Speaker, I seek your view as to whether we can go back to consider the amendment that I moved and was passed. Mr Gentleman then moved—

MADAM SPEAKER: Could I just clarify this because I have misled the Assembly. Standing order 187, in relation to the reconsideration of a bill, says:

At the conclusion of the detail stage of a bill a Member may move that a bill be reconsidered either in whole or in part.

We have actually started the discussion about reconsidering clause 8. With leave, we could actually reconsider clause 8, get clause 8 out of the way and then move on.

Motion (by Mr Gentleman, by leave) agreed to:

That clause 8, as amended, be reconsidered.

MS LAWDER (Brindabella) (6.11): I move amendment No 6 circulated in my name [see schedule 7 at page 2146].
