Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 1999 Week 12 Hansard (16 November) . . Page.. 3542 ..

MR STEFANIAK (continuing):

The revised arrangements should also increase the amount of the levy available for training. The Building Act is being amended to -

ensure that the method for determining the Building Levy is based on the value of the work- at present, the Building Act is silent on this point; and

to ensure that the Training Levy is paid before building approval can be given.

I commend these amendments to the Building Act to this Assembly.

MR STEFANIAK: I have just one further comment. This Bill and the previous Bill I have tabled are quite urgent Bills. I note the will of the Assembly, as a result of today, to adjourn until next Wednesday week. The Bills will need to be debated next Thursday week as the training levy comes into effect on Saturday, 21 November. I make that point to members.

Debate (on motion by Mr Berry ) adjourned.
