Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2018 Week 13 Hansard (29 November) . . Page.. 5160 ..


MR COE (Yerrabi—Leader of the Opposition) (7.31): I move amendment No 18 circulated in my name [see schedule 1 at page 5202]. This amendment simply specifies that the appointment process should be a competitive one.

MR BARR (Kurrajong—Chief Minister, Treasurer, Minister for Social Inclusion and Equality, Minister for Tourism and Special Events and Minister for Trade, Industry and Investment) (7.31): We can start off this session in agreement; for the same reasons that we outlined when a similar amendment was moved, I am happy to support this.

MR RATTENBURY (Kurrajong) (7.32): Similarly, we will agree to this amendment.

Amendment agreed to.

Clause 41, as amended, agreed to.

Clauses 42 to 49, by leave, taken together and agreed to.

Clause 50.

MR COE (Yerrabi—Leader of the Opposition) (7.32): I move amendment No 19 circulated in my name [see schedule 1 at page 5202]. This is just a minor and technical amendment that will add clarity.

MR BARR (Kurrajong—Chief Minister, Treasurer, Minister for Social Inclusion and Equality, Minister for Tourism and Special Events and Minister for Trade, Industry and Investment) (7.33): I agree that it will add clarity. We will support it.

MR RATTENBURY (Kurrajong) (7.33): We also believe this offers clarity and is an improvement to the bill. We will be supporting it.

Amendment agreed to.

Clause 50, as amended, agreed to.

Clauses 51 to 70, by leave, taken together and agreed to.

Clause 71.

MR COE (Yerrabi—Leader of the Opposition) (7.34): I move amendment No 20 circulated in my name [see schedule 1 at page 5202]. This amendment seeks to prevent the legislation unduly restricting the commission in looking into matters that involve judicial officers. In practice, the commission will likely dismiss complaints that only involve the merits of a decision made by a judicial officer. However, there will still be time when a decision may well be linked to corrupt conduct. Therefore, we do not want to risk unintentionally restricting the commission.
