Debate resumed from 5 December 1991, on motion by Mr Connolly:

That this Bill be agreed to in principle.

DR KINLOCH (6.41): This is a delightful one-page Bill with only one part that really need worry us. It is a relatively minor and technical amendment of the Public Trustee Act, an aspect of a much broader policy which has been dealt with before. This short Bill will provide for the inclusion of the Public Trustee in the class of public authorities which are required under the Audit Act 1989 to keep accounts on a commercial basis. It removes the Public Trustee from the class that it is in at present, which are not so required. I suggest that we pass the Bill forthwith.

MR CONNOLLY (Attorney-General, Minister for Housing and Community Services and Minister for Urban Services) (6.42): I thank Dr Kinloch for his helpful and short speech and wish the Bill a very swift passage.

Question resolved in the affirmative.

Bill agreed to in principle.

Leave granted to dispense with the detail stage.

Bill agreed to.
