Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2002 Week 9 Hansard (20 August) . . Page.. 2488 ..

MR WOOD (continuing):

Leave granted.

MR WOOD: I move amendments 3 and 4 [see schedule 1 at page 2493].

Proposed new section 83B substitutes a new definition of written-off vehicle, which is now necessary following detailed drafting of the regulations. A motor wrecker does not assess whether a vehicle is a total loss, so an amendment is required to ensure that the dismantling or demolition of a vehicle by a motor wrecker is, for the purposes of the legislation, the writing off of the vehicle.

Proposed new section 83E makes it clear that important private information on the written-off vehicle register will be kept securely and disclosed only in circumstances authorised by law. It also includes notes about relevant information privacy principles and access under the FOI Act. This has been inserted as clarification following a point raised by the Standing Committee on Legal Affairs and reflects similar amendments made to proposed sections 33D and 33E, which we have just passed.

Amendments agreed to.

Clause 13, as amended, agreed to.

Remainder of bill, by leave, taken as a whole and agreed to.

Bill, as amended, agreed to.


Motion (by Mr Wood ) proposed:

That the Assembly do now adjourn.

It is the breadth and depth of the community support that they offer that I wish to bring to the attention of the Assembly. At the lunch something like 96 grants totalling over $200,000 were given out. This was a day of great rejoicing because it encompassed the community.

To prove that, I would like to read the list of organisations that received grants. I do this for a couple of reasons. The first, as I have said, is to show the depth and breadth of the commitment of the Southern Cross Club to the community. This list is a wonderful endorsement of the amount of community support in our city, the city that the rest of the
