Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 1999 Week 7 Hansard (2 July) . . Page.. 2085..


Friday, 2 July 1999

________________

MR SPEAKER (Mr Cornwell) took the chair at 10.30 am and asked members to stand in silence and pray or reflect on their responsibilities to the people of the Australian Capital Territory.

JUSTICE AND COMMUNITY SAFETY - STANDING COMMITTEE

Scrutiny Report No. 7 of 1999 and Statement

MR OSBORNE: I present Scrutiny Report No. 7 of 1999 of the Standing Committee on Justice and Community Safety performing the duties of a scrutiny of Bills and subordinate legislation committee. I ask for leave to make a brief statement on the report.

Leave granted.

MR OSBORNE: Scrutiny Report No. 7 contains the committee's comments on eight Bills. Mr Speaker, there is one issue in the report that I suggest the Government look at and that is in relation to red light cameras. The legal adviser to the committee has raised a number of significant concerns. I understand that the Government wishes to deal with that matter. I assumed it was coming before the Assembly today.

Mr Smyth: It is not on today.

MR OSBORNE: It is not coming on today. Nevertheless, there are some significant issues there that I think the Minister should have a look at. I commend the report to the Assembly.

WORKERS' COMPENSATION SYSTEM - SELECT COMMITTEE

Alteration to Resolution of Appointment

MR BERRY (10.32): I seek leave to move a motion to amend the resolution of appointment of the Select Committee on the Workers' Compensation System. This is because members did not get their names in within the required time yesterday.

Leave granted.

MR BERRY: I move:

That paragraph (2) of the resolution of the Assembly of 1 July 1999 appointing the Select Committee on the Workers' Compensation System be amended by omitting "Thursday, 1 July 1999" and substituting "Friday, 2 July 1999".

Question resolved in the affirmative.
