Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2015 Week 11 Hansard (Tuesday, 22 September 2015) . . Page.. 3295 ..


I seek leave to make a brief statement.

Leave granted.

MR DOSZPOT: Scrutiny report 37 contains the committee’s comments on 36 pieces of subordinate legislation, two government responses and two regulatory impact statements. The report was circulated to members when the Assembly was not sitting.

In his response to the committee’s comments on the Crimes (Child Sex Offenders) Amendment Bill 2015, the Attorney-General expressed his disappointment that the report was tabled in the Assembly only two days before it was scheduled for debate. I advise the attorney that the committee was scheduled to meet to consider the bill on Tuesday, 8 September but, due to the unavailability of government members to attend, a quorum could not be formed. The meeting was rescheduled for the next available time when a quorum of members could be formed, which was Monday, 14 September. I commend the report to the Assembly.

Public Accounts–Standing Committee

Reporting date

MS LAWDER (Brindabella) (10.06): I seek leave to move a motion to alter the reporting date for the Standing Committee on Public Accounts’ inquiry into the ACT clubs sector.

Leave granted.

MS LAWDER: I move:

That the resolution of the Assembly of 26 March 2015 referring Elements Impacting on the Future of the ACT Clubs Sector to the Standing Committee on Public Accounts for inquiry and report be amended by omitting the words “by the last sitting day in September 2015” and substituting “by the last sitting day in October 2015” and adding a new paragraph (3)(d):

“(3)(d) if the Assembly is not sitting when the report is completed the Speaker, or, in the absence of the Speaker, the Deputy Speaker, is authorised to give directions for its printing, publication and circulation.”

Question resolved in the affirmative.
