Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2016 Week 2 Hansard (16 February) . .
Prevention of harm, therefore, caused by violent extremism is the ACT government's primary concern. But we must continue also to be prepared to respond to the threat of a terrorist act through measures such as those outlined in this bill. This will ensure that the ACT's protections will remain in place as we seek to address and eradicate the precursors to radicalisation and the threat of terrorism. I commend the bill to the Assembly.
That this bill be agreed to in principle.
The Assembly voted-
Ayes 16 Mr Barr Ms Berry Dr Bourke Ms Burch Mr Coe Mr Corbell Mr Doszpot Mrs Dunne Ms Fitzharris Mr Gentleman Mr Hanson Mrs Jones Ms Lawder Ms Porter Mr Smyth Mr Wall
Noes 1 Mr Rattenbury

Leave granted to dispense with the detail stage.
Bill agreed to.
Order of the day—postponement
Ordered that order of the day No 2, executive business, be postponed to the next day of sitting.
Justice Legislation Amendment Bill 2015
Debate resumed from 19 November 2015, on motion by Mr Rattenbury:
MR HANSON (Molonglo—Leader of the Opposition) (11.10): The Canberra Liberals will agree in principle with this bill, but we do so with an important caveat. Many aspects of this bill address issues which are straightforward and sensible, for example, the sections relating to recognition of interstate parentage orders. The explanatory statement notes that this change means that if a baby is born in the ACT but a parentage order relating to any surrogacy arrangements for the child is made in another jurisdiction, the parents will be able to be recorded as the parents of the child on their ACT birth certificate. We do not have issues with those changes.
