Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2021 Week 07 Hansard (Thursday, 24 June 2021) . . Page.. 2022 ..

MR ASSISTANT SPEAKER: Mr Rattenbury, I will confer with the Clerk for a moment. On reflection, I am inclined to agree, Mr Hanson. It is a matter of skating on thin ice. I would remind you to be relevant to the question, which is that the report be adopted.

MR HANSON: I have nothing further to say, Mr Assistant Speaker.

MR BRADDOCK (Yerrabi) (11.41): I, for one, welcome the report from the Commissioner for Standards and from admin and procedure on this matter. I note that the commissioner, as part of his findings, did not feel that the referral of this matter was vexatious or politically motivated. In fact, he has drawn our attention to an area where we need to strengthen the standing orders and the code of conduct in terms of examining the misuse of information by members who have become ex-members of the Assembly. I look forward to working on this matter as we undertake the review of the standing orders in the middle of this term.

Question resolved in the affirmative.

Justice and Community Safety—Standing Committee

Statement by chair

MR HANSON (Murrumbidgee) (11.42): Pursuant to standing order 246A, I wish to make a statement on behalf of the Standing Committee on Justice and Community Safety. At a private meeting on 16 June 2021, the committee resolved to conduct an inquiry into community corrections.

The committee will inquire into and report on the operation of community corrections, with particular reference to the parole system, intensive correction orders, the Sentence Administration Board, drug and alcohol treatment orders, recidivism outcomes, experiences of offenders and their families, experiences of victim survivors and any other relevant matter. The committee will today call for public submissions.


Out-of-order petition

MS ORR (Yerrabi) (11.43), by leave: I present the following paper:

Petition which does not conform with the standing orders—Bonner Oval facilities—Ms Orr (250 signatures).

It is a paper copy of the e-petition that was lodged on Tuesday in regard to the Bonner bubbler. I want to make sure that everyone who is passionate about this cause has their passion recorded on the record.
