Clause 8

MR SMYTH (Minister for Urban Services) (5.10): Mr Speaker, the next seven amendments circulated in my name all concern the Pialligo leases and the payout formula therein. It is in recognition of the special nature of the Pialligo leases that they also contain a commercial component, so the payout regime is being modified. I move:

Page 3, line 14, proposed new section 186B, definition of discharge amount , omit the definition, substitute the following definitions:

"discharge amount -

    1. in relation to a special Pialligo lease-means an amount determined in accordance with section 186EA; or
    2. in any other case-means an amount determined in accordance with section 186E.

earlier index number , for a lease, means the last index number issued before the lease was granted under section 161 or 171A.".

I table a supplementary explanatory memorandum to the Bill and commend the amendment to the house.

MR CORBELL (5.11): Mr Speaker, the Labor Party will be supporting this amendment. As the Minister has indicated, it does address issues relating to the special nature of rural leases at Pialligo and this response would appear to be an appropriate response to that issue.
