Amendment of Resolution
MR KAINE (5.58): Mr Speaker, I seek leave to move a motion to put into force the recommendation of the Standing Committee on Administration and Procedure's Report "Register of Members Interests".
MR KAINE: I move:
That the 1992 resolution concerning the declaration of private interests of Members be amended by:
(1) Inserting the following new paragraph:
"(1A) Under the general direction of the Speaker, the Clerk shall store the declarations of private interests made by each Member in a secure manner and shall include all declarations made by each Member. When a Member vacates his or her seat and is not re-elected at the next general election for the Assembly, the Clerk shall destroy all declarations made by that Member in his custody.".
(2) Omitting from paragraph (2) "such declaration", substitute "any declaration stored by the Clerk".
Mr Speaker, those amendments have the effect of putting into force the recommendations of the committee.
Question resolved in the affirmative.
