Scrutiny Report No. 3 and Statement
MR OSBORNE: Mr Speaker, I present Scrutiny Report No. 3 of 1998 of the Standing Committee on Justice and Community Safety performing the duties of a scrutiny of Bills and subordinate legislation committee. I ask for leave to make a brief statement on the report.
MR OSBORNE: Scrutiny Report No. 3 of 1998, which I have just presented, was circulated when the Assembly was not sitting, on 22 June 1998, pursuant to the resolution of appointment of 28 April 1998. I commend the report to the Assembly.
Debate resumed from 28 May 1998, on motion by Ms Carnell:
That this Bill be agreed to in principle.
MR SPEAKER: Is it the wish of the Assembly to debate this order of the day concurrently with the Subsidies (Liquor and Diesel) Bill 1998? What a strange combination! There being no objection, that course will be followed. I remind members that in debating order of the day No. 5 they may also address their remarks to order of the day No. 6.
MR QUINLAN (11.28): Mr Speaker, we support the Bills. They are, in fact, administrative matters arising out of High Court decisions which remove powers from the States and replace administrative arrangements previously in place. Both Bills are supported.
