Criminal Proceedings Legislation Amendment Bill 2011

Debate resumed from 17 February 2011, on motion by Mr Corbell:

That this bill be agreed to in principle.

MRS DUNNE (Ginninderra) (9.49): The Canberra Liberals will not be supporting this bill because it fails in every respect. One of those failures relates to consultation. There has been none. As my colleague Mr Seselja will note later on, there has been plenty of commentary on the bill but there has been no consultation.

Mr Corbell introduced this bill in February and then left it on the table. This may seem fine and good, but there was no call for submissions, no deadline date, no indication as to whether Mr Corbell would review the bill in light of the submissions made. There is not even any notice about where to send any submissions that any member of the public might like to make. The truth is that Mr Corbell had no intention of changing even a single punctuation mark.
