Legal Affairs-Standing Committee

Scrutiny Report No 20 of 2002

MR STEFANIAK: I present the following report:

Legal Affairs-Standing Committee (performing the duties of a Scrutiny of Bills and Subordinate Legislation Committee):-Scrutiny Report No 20, dated 11 November, together with the relevant minutes of proceedings.

I seek leave to make a brief statement.

Leave granted.

MR STEFANIAK: Mr Speaker, Scrutiny Report No 20 contains the committee's comments on five bills, 15 pieces of subordinate legislation, and two government responses. The report was tabled out of session to give the government time to address some of the issues raised.

Specifically, the committee would like the government to look very closely at the points we have raised in relation to the Criminal Code bill. There are some significant points there. Indeed, on a number of issues, I think there would be some significant changes to the law, which may be controversial. I think the government needs to take a good hard look at that. I would impress upon them the need to respond to our concerns in this regard.

I commend the report to the Assembly.
