Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2003 Week 10 Hansard (23 September) . . Page.. 3550 ..

MR WOOD (continuing):

which were previously exempted. Accordingly, I have made a determination to waive the permit to purchase and registration fees for replacement pistols for competition shooters and the licensing and registration fees for collectors of antique percussion pistols. I understand that the number of shooters and collectors who will now take advantage of these arrangements will be small and the amounts will be low.

I am advised that the buyback is proceeding satisfactorily without incident, as we would expect from the owners in this territory. It is being monitored by the department and by the firearms consultative committee. I will provide members with a detailed report on the outcome of the buyback on its completion on 31 December.

MR PRATT: I seek leave to make a statement.

Leave granted.

MR PRATT: We support these provisions and are quite happy to wait and see how the buyback goes from here. I am looking forward to those reports, Minister.
