Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2003 Week 13 Hansard (25 November) . . Page.. 4563..


MR STANHOPE (continuing):

Two further amendments are proposed to new section 30 of the Inquiries Act as a result of recent amendments to the Civil Law (Wrongs) Act, basically requiring paragraph renumbering in the Inquiries Amendment Bill 2003. Consequently the amendments that I have tabled provide for that renumbering and propose the deletion of proposed subsection 38 (4) of the Inquiries Act 1991.

So essentially there are two consequential renumberings of subsections and removal of the proposed subsection 38(4) on the basis of advice from the scrutiny of bills committee in relation to concerns it expressed about potential liability and the wideness of the protection provided in the proposed 38 (4).

Amendments agreed to.

Clause 7, as amended, agreed to.

Remainder of bill, by leave, taken as a whole and agreed to.
