On behalf of the Attorney-General, I would like to express my ongoing appreciation for members’ continuing support for the technical amendments program. The technical amendments program is another example of the territory leading the way and striving for the best—in this case, a modern, high quality, up-to-date, easily accessible statute book.
Question resolved in the affirmative.
Bill agreed to in principle.
Leave granted to dispense with the detail stage.
Bill agreed to.

MR ASSISTANT SPEAKER (Mr Hargreaves): Mr Speaker has received notification in writing of the following nominations for membership of the Select Committee on Election Commitments Costing Bill 2011 Exposure Draft: Mr Rattenbury and Mr Smyth.
Motion (by Ms Gallagher) agreed to:
That the Members so nominated, and the Treasurer, be appointed as members of the Select Committee on Election Commitments Costing Bill 2011 Exposure Draft.
MS GALLAGHER (Molonglo—Chief Minister, Minister for Health and Minister for Industrial Relations) (6.14): I move:
That the Assembly do now adjourn.
Just briefly, in question time today I said that the Attorney-General had corrected the record publicly in writing and on social media. I have been advised that the Attorney-General had not corrected the information about the RSPCA on social media. I just correct the record. In response to a question from Mr Coe around RSPCA funding, I did undertake to clarify the answer to the question and I am doing that. I am advised that I will be able to do that in writing to members probably tomorrow.
White Ribbon campaign
MR RATTENBURY (Molonglo) (6.15): I rise tonight to reflect on two important campaigns that are taking place at the moment, between now and the next sitting.
