Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2011 Week 13 Hansard (Wednesday, 16 November 2011) . . Page.. 5362 ..


MRS DUNNE (Ginninderra) (11.19): With this and the next amendment the Canberra Liberals are not going to quibble over a year.

Amendment agreed to.

Clause 7, as amended, agreed to.

Clause 8.

MR CORBELL (Molonglo—Attorney-General, Minister for the Environment and Sustainable Development, Minister for Territory and Municipal Services and Minister for Police and Emergency Services) (11.20): I move amendment No 6 circulated in my name [see schedule 1 at page 5491].

If the maximum penalty for the basic offence of culpable driving causing death is set at 14 years, 16 years is a more appropriate penalty for the aggravated form of the offence. As I have said earlier, the government is prepared to support a small penalty loading for aggravated offences and believes that a two-year loading is appropriate in order to ensure passage of these other important reforms.

Amendment agreed to.

Clause 8, as amended, agreed to.

Remainder of bill, by leave, taken as a whole and agreed to.

Bill, as amended, agreed to.
