Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 1996 Week 14 Hansard (11 December) . . Page.. 4676 ..

Question resolved in the affirmative.

Bill agreed to in principle.

Detail Stage
Bill, by leave, taken as a whole

MR BERRY (11.36): Mr Speaker, I move:

Page 2, line 19, clause 6, omit "paragraphs (1)(c) and (d)", substitute "paragraphs (1)(c) and (d) and (2)(c) and (d)".

Mr De Domenico: What does it do?

MR BERRY: We will get to it, mate. We will get to it; never mind. Mr Speaker, this amendment arises from a Scrutiny of Bills Committee assessment of the Bill. If I may describe Professor Whalan as this, the hawk-eyed Professor Whalan found that there had been an oversight in the Bill in the application of the new formula to parts of the legislation which apply in respect of accrued benefits. That is in section 53 of the legislation. It is the entitlement to payment in lieu of leave. Mr Speaker, the amendment remedies that oversight.

Amendment agreed to.
