Scrutiny Report No. 4 of 1998 and Statement

MR OSBORNE: Scrutiny Report No. 4 of 1998 contains the committee's comments on the Gaming Machine (Amendment) Bill (No. 2) 1998. The scrutiny of Bills committee identified a number of issues in Ms Tucker's Bill. They are only minor issues. They are things that I think we can quickly cover. I believe that Ms Tucker will look at those issues, and we will get to her piece of legislation at the end of the program tonight. I commend the report to the Assembly.
MR OSBORNE (4.22): I move:
