Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2018 Week 13 Hansard (29 November) . . Page.. 5173 ..


Amendment negatived.

MR COE (Yerrabi—Leader of the Opposition) (8.30): I move amendment No 50 circulated in my name [see schedule 1 at page 5204]. This is similar to the case I made in amendment No 47 for going back to reputational repair protocols.

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) (8.30): I am happy to support this amendment.

Amendment agreed to.

Clause 204, as amended, agreed to.

Clause 205.

MR COE (Yerrabi—Leader of the Opposition) (8.30), by leave: I move amendments Nos 51 to 63 circulated in my name together [see schedule 1 at page 5204]. We have already discussed this. This is about the reporting regime. We think there is a real risk that the inspector is going to be perceived to—or, worse still, actually does—get involved in day-to-day operations. Obviously, there is no will in the Assembly to make these changes, so I will move them but note members' earlier comments.

Amendments negatived.

Clause 205 agreed to.

Clauses 206 and 207, by leave, taken together and agreed to.

Clause 208.

MR COE (Yerrabi—Leader of the Opposition) (8.32): I move amendment No 64 circulated in my name, which omits clause 208 [see schedule 1 at page 5205]. Clause 208 is similar to what we discussed earlier with regard to where the line is when the commission reports corruption as opposed to serious or systemic corruption, and we stand by the argument that no delineation is required.

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) (8.33): This is the issue we have debated before. Consistent with the position we took on the previous clauses, we will not be supporting this amendment.

MR RATTENBURY (Kurrajong) (8.33): For the same reasons I expressed earlier, we will not be supporting this amendment, either.

Question put:

That the amendment be agreed to.
