Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 1995 Week 9 Hansard (21 November) . . Page.. 2208 ..
MR HUMPHRIES (continuing):
I also present a report for 1994-95 for the National Crime Authority, including financial statements and the report of the Acting Executive Director from the Australian National Audit Office; a report for 1994-95 from the Director of Public Prosecutions, pursuant to section 30 of the Director of Public Prosecutions Act 1990; and a report for 1994-95 from the ACT Vocational Training Authority, pursuant to section 12 of the Vocational Training Act 1989.
Pursuant to standing order 83A, I present a petition lodged with Mr Osborne with 33 signatures and relating to euthanasia, which does not conform with standing orders.
Papers and Ministerial Statement
MR HUMPHRIES (Attorney-General and Minister for the Environment, Land and Planning): I present the schedule of lease variations for the period 1 July to 30 September 1995 and, pursuant to the Land (Planning and Environment) Act 1991, the schedule of leases granted in the quarter ended 30 September 1995. I ask for leave to make a brief statement on the schedule of leases granted.
MR HUMPHRIES: The Land (Planning and Environment) Act 1991 requires a schedule to be tabled in the Legislative Assembly of leases that were issued by a direct grant during a quarter. The Act also requires that the schedule be tabled within five sitting days of the end of each quarter. Due to an administrative oversight, the schedule for the period 1 July 1995 to 30 September 1995 was not available by the required date, and I apologise for the oversight.
Ms Follett: Yet another oversight.
MR HUMPHRIES: Yes, we do make mistakes occasionally. I am glad to hear that Ms Follett never does. A record of all new leases and applications to vary crown leases is available for public inspection at the Environment and Land Bureau shopfront in John Overall Offices in Northbourne Avenue.
Report and Statement
MR OSBORNE: I present Report No. 15 of 1995 of the Standing Committee on Scrutiny of Bills and Subordinate Legislation, and I ask for leave to make a brief statement on the report.
MR OSBORNE: Report No. 15 of 1995 contains the committee's comments on one Bill and 11 pieces of subordinate legislation. I commend the report to the Assembly.
