Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 1999 Week 13 Hansard (9 December) . . Page.. 4062 ..

MR MOORE (continuing):

Powers assigned to the Registrar for: specifying conditions in relation to a specific licence; refusing to grant a licence; and cancelling a licence;

Provisions relating to offences by licensees and disciplinary action to be taken by the Registrar (basically, those already enacted in the Tobacco (Amendment) Act 1999 but moved to a new section); and

A requirement for the licensee to display on the premises his/her name, licence number and any conditions applying in respect of the licence (as required by the existing licensing legislation).

Mr Speaker, I am delighted to present the Tobacco Amendment Bill (No 2) 1999 which proposes important procedural amendments.

The Government is confident that these amendments will ensure that the ACT's excellent tobacco licensing system is preserved, that the system is strengthened in ways which meets business and community needs, and that responsibility for tobacco licensing is placed where it logically belongs - as a public health measure, with the Registrar for Tobacco in the Department of Health and Community Care.

Debate (on motion by Mr Stanhope ) adjourned.
