Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2008 Week 10 Hansard (Tuesday, 26 August 2008) . . Page.. 3704 ..


Question so resolved in the affirmative.

Bill agreed to in principle.

Detail stage

Bill, by leave, taken as a whole.

Standing order 76—suspension

Motion (by Mr Corbell) agreed to, with the concurrence of an absolute majority:

That standing order 76 be suspended for the remainder of this sitting.

MR BARR (Molonglo—Minister for Education and Training, Minister for Planning, Minister for Tourism, Sport and Recreation, Minister for Industrial Relations) (10.47): I seek leave to move amendments Nos 1 and 2 circulated in my name together.

Leave granted.

MR BARR: I move amendments No 1 and 2 circulated in my name together and table a supplementary explanatory statement to the government amendments [see schedule 2 at page 3725]. These are very simple amendments that remove the reference to a code of conduct—proposed new section 55P—for a service contractor. Under the proposed legislation, the code of conduct does not apply to service contractors. This was included in the bill in error and applies to both amendment 1 and amendment 2.

DR FOSKEY (Molonglo) (10.48): I oppose the amendments. As I said in my speech, I am willing to support the bill to the in-principle stage. Everything that we have heard tonight indicates that we should not be voting it into law tonight.

Amendments agreed to.

Bill as a whole, as amended, agreed to.

Question put:

That the bill, as amended, be agreed to.
