Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2018 Week 10 Hansard (Thursday, 20 September 2018) . . Page.. 3903 ..


the Road Transport (Driver Licensing) Act 1999 of driving or applying for a driver licence during a period of licence suspension. That offence should be included in the section 61A definition but was overlooked when amendments were made to the driver licensing act in 2013. The bill corrects that oversight.

I commend the bill to the Assembly.

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