Page.. 258..


Appropriation (Office of the Legislative Assembly) Bill 2017-2018 (No 2)

Mr Barr, pursuant to notice, presented the bill, its explanatory statement and a Human Rights Act compatibility statement.

Title read by Clerk.

MR BARR (Kurrajong—Chief Minister, Treasurer, Minister for Economic Development and Minister for Tourism and Major Events) (11.47): I move:

That this bill be agreed to in principle.

This bill is a technical formality in that it needs to be split from the main appropriation bill because it seeks to appropriate an additional relatively small quantum of funds to the Legislative Assembly to undertake some further building works. It is a very straightforward initiative and I am sure all members are cognisant of the work that is occurring next door to us and the need for improved environmental efficiency in this building and would recognise the value in double glazing, particularly to the south frontage of the building at this time. This appropriation seeks to achieve that end. I commend it to the Assembly.

Debate (on motion by Mr Coe) adjourned to the next sitting.

Reference to committee

Motion (by Mr Coe) agreed to:

That the Appropriation (Office of the Legislative Assembly) Bill 2017-2018 (No 2) be referred to the Standing Committee on Public Accounts.

That this bill be agreed to in principle.

I present to the Assembly the Planning and Development (Lease Variation Charge Deferred Payment Scheme) Amendment Bill 2018. The bill establishes a legislative framework for the implementation of a deferred payment scheme for the lease variation charge. As members would be aware, as we have debated this ad nauseum
