Thursday, 20 September 1990


MR SPEAKER (Mr Prowse) took the chair at 10.30 am and read the prayer.


The Clerk: The following petition has been lodged for presentation, and a copy will be referred to the appropriate Minister:

Wanniassa Hills Primary School

To the Speaker and members of the Legislative Assembly for the Australian Capital Territory

The petition of certain residents of the Australian Capital Territory draws to the attention of the Legislative Assembly:

the fact that Kindergarten children at Wanniassa Hills Primary School (WHPS) finish at 2.30pm. This varies by half an hour with their fellow students at WHPS and students at the majority of other Government-run schools in the ACT, all of whom finish at 3.00pm.

Your petitioners therefore request the Assembly to:

assist in aligning the finish time for Kindergarten children at WHPS with that of other students at WHPS and other Government-run primary schools in the ACT.

By Mr Humphries (from 63 citizens).

Petition received.


MR HUMPHRIES (Minister for Health, Education and the Arts) (10.31): Mr Speaker, I present the Venereal Diseases (Amendment) Bill 1990. I move:

That this Bill be agreed to in principle.

Mr Speaker, this Bill amends the Venereal Diseases Act 1956. The Act provides for the mandatory notification of venereal diseases to the ACT Community and Health Service. The Act also authorises the payment of a $1 fee to medical practitioners and pathologists upon notification of a case of venereal disease to the appropriate authority.
