Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2016 Week 6 Hansard (9 June) . .
The rest of the matters in the bill, as I said, are important matters that are well explained in the bill and the explanatory statement and I will be pleased to support the bill this evening.
MR CORBELL (Molonglo—Deputy Chief Minister, Attorney-General, Minister for Capital Metro, Minister for Health, Minister for Police and Emergency Services and Minister for the Environment and Climate Change) (8.57), in reply: The Justice and Community Safety Legislation Bill amends a number of statutes in the Justice and Community Safety portfolio and one in the Health portfolio.
I would like to thank members for their support of these proposals. And I would simply like to draw to the attention of members that I have advised the opposition of my intention to move an amendment at the detail stage of the debate. I will be providing more information at that stage but essentially the amendment will allow the Victims of Crime Commissioner to make a payment to the Public Trustee and Guardian to be held in trust for a child if that is appropriate. With that, I thank members for their support of the bill.
