Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2021 Week 13 Hansard (Tuesday, 30 November 2021) . . Page.. 3905 ..


I wish to assure the community and stakeholders that I intend to bring my bill forward in the first available opportunity in 2022. I acknowledge concern in the community and frustration about the lack of affirmative consent laws in the ACT, but I want to provide assurances that things are moving and that, when my bill is tabled, the community can be confident that it has gone through an incredibly rigorous process to ensure that the bill has all likelihood of passing.

Ultimately, the goal is that we have robust, comprehensive legislation that causes no harm, and that is what I believe this process will achieve. I say to victim-survivors in the ACT: I am working for you. This is for you, and we are nearly there.

Question resolved in the affirmative.

The Assembly adjourned at 5.36 pm.
