Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2010 Week 11 Hansard (Wednesday, 20 October 2010) . . Page.. 4717 ..

what extent are the two exposure draft bills in line with government policy on the matter?

MR CORBELL: I refer Mr Seselja to the Deputy Chief Minister and Treasurer. She has responsibility for that legislation.

MS GALLAGHER: I think you can see from the exposure draft released by the government that the government has outlined legislation which introduces thresholds both in road transport CTP insurance and in the area of workers compensation. We have done this, after having a different position, based on the information to date available to the government about the performance of both of those schemes. Now we are consulting and discussing this with a range of stakeholders and other service providers, including the insurers, the representatives of workers and the plaintiff lawyers across the ACT, and it is with the intention that we introduce this legislation, hopefully, in the December sittings.

MRS DUNNE: Minister, how often in your busy career do you ask that there be no record kept of speeches that you make?
