Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2010 Week 06 Hansard (Tuesday, 22 June 2010) . . Page.. 2124 ..

The committee therefore seeks an extension to the Assembly reporting time frame for this inquiry until the last sitting day in August 2010 in order to now consider the CMC best practice guide and the additional issues raised in the submissions. That is why the committee wishes that the resolution of the Assembly of 25 February 2009, as amended on 13 October and 10 December 2009, in reference to live community events be amended by omitting the words “and present a final report by the last sitting day in June 2010” and substituting the words “and present a final report by the last sitting day in August 2010”.

Question resolved in the affirmative.

Justice and Community Safety—Standing Committee

Scrutiny report 23

MRS DUNNE (Ginninderra): I present the following report:

Scrutiny report 23 of the Standing Committee on Justice and Community Safety performing the duties of a Scrutiny of Bills and Subordinate Legislation Committee together with the relevant minutes of proceedings.

I seek leave to make a brief statement.

Leave granted.

MRS DUNNE: Scrutiny report 23 contains the committee’s comments on five bills, 10 pieces of subordinate legislation, five government responses and one private member’s response. The report was circulated to members when the Assembly was not sitting.

I would also like to advise the Assembly that the committee is currently developing a position paper in relation to the desirable content of explanatory statements. The committee will keep the Assembly informed of progress on this matter. I commend the report to the Assembly.

Territory-Owned Corporations Amendment Bill 2010

Ms Gallagher, by leave, presented the bill, its explanatory statement and a Human Rights Act compatibility statement.

Title read by Clerk.

MS GALLAGHER (Molonglo—Deputy Chief Minister, Treasurer, Minister for Health and Minister for Industrial Relations) (12.08): I move:

That this bill be agreed to in principle.

You will recall that, in this Assembly on 6 May 2010, I resolved to bring forward legislation to improve the level of disclosure in the executive remuneration paid by territory-owned corporations. This bill will amend the Territory-Owned Corporations Act 1990 to meet that objective.
