(2) The Government has had some approaches from non profit sporting bodies claiming they may fold, due to the insurance crisis but the Government has no specific evidence of this and no records dealing with it.

Only one, an amateur indoor soccer organisation has suspended its activities due to the cost of insurance as opposed to its availability. In this regard, the Government has no constitutional authority over insurance generally and the cost of insurance in particular. The Government will, along with other governments about to implement the second round of tort reform legislation, look for promised reductions in public liability premiums represented by the industry.

(3) In the first instance, the group insurance scheme applicable in the ACT is likewise available in NSW. I understand that Shires and City bordering the ACT have decided to apply similar principles to the ACT in setting public liability insurance levels for bodies using their property and open spaces.
