The ACT has had the Electronic Transactions Act 2001 to provide for information requirements in legislation in electronic form. To ensure that there is no barrier to the use of electronic forms where it is the most efficient and appropriate approach, the bill removes references to the compulsory or sole use of outdated communications through the statute book, such as “fax” and “telex” machines.

This government is ensuring that our legislation is fit for purpose. The red tape reduction bill ensures that we are consistently simplifying our legislation and our regulation, as well as modernising it so that it is reflective of the modern, innovative and ever-improving city we live in. I commend the bill to the Assembly.

Debate (on motion by Mr Wall) adjourned to the next sitting.
