Legislative Assembly for the ACT: Week 9 Hansard (18 August) . . Page.. 3887..


Corrections Reform Amendment Bill 2003

Rescission and reconsideration

MR SMYTH (Leader of the Opposition) (5.12): I seek leave to move a motion in relation to the Corrections Reform Amendment Bill 2004.

Leave granted.

MR SMYTH: I move:

That the Assembly:

(1) rescind the resolution of the Assembly to agree to the remainder of the Bill as a whole and that the Bill, as amended, be agreed to; and

(2) recommit the Bill at the detail stage and that the following questions be put in relation to the Bill:

(a) that clauses 16 and 17 be agreed to;

(b) that the Title be agreed to; and

(c) that this Bill, as amended, be agreed to.

To expedite the finalisation of the bill we agreed that the remainder of the bill be dealt with as a whole. Of course, that included the title. As that was negated, the bill is now a bill with no title. It could go through as a bill with no title, which would be unique, but perhaps for clarity and the sake of those who might come after us we should agree to this motion so it will get its title back.

Question resolved in the affirmative.

Detail stage

Clauses 16 and 17, by leave, taken together and negatived.

Title agreed to.

Bill, as amended, agreed to.
