Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 1999 Week 11 Hansard (21 October) . . Page.. 3423 ..

MR STEFANIAK (continuing):

to provide education programs and to disseminate information about sports drug use, effects, testing and penalties;

to select competitors who are to be requested to provide samples for testing, and to arrange for the sample-taking and testing in accordance with the provision in the Commonwealth's ASDA Act; and

to establish and maintain a register of competitors who return a positive test or who refuse to submit to testing, and to notify the athlete concerned, the athlete's sporting associations and the ACT Government's sports agency of inclusion in the register.

A formal agreement between the ACT Government and ASDA will be required before ASDA can carry out its functions in respect to ACT athletes. All States and Territories will enter into similar agreements with ASDA under their complementary legislation. This agreement will set out the necessary funding and operational arrangements. Testing of athletes under the agreement would be subject to conditions agreed by the ACT Government and ASDA. I commend the Bill to members.

Debate (on motion by Mr Quinlan ) adjourned.
