members for their support, and I also acknowledge the efforts of the Canberra university, and officers from the Department of Education and Training for their work on this bill.

Question resolved in the affirmative.

Bill agreed to in principle.

Detail stage

Bill, by leave, taken as a whole.

MS GALLAGHER (Molonglo—Minister for Education and Training, Minister for Children, Youth and Family Support, Minister for Women and Minister for Industrial Relations) (11.55): I move amendment No 1 circulated in my name. [see schedule 2 at page 2941]. I present a supplementary explanatory statement to the amendment.

We are amending the provisions for sanctions in the University of Canberra Amendment Bill. I recently wrote to Mrs Dunne, in her capacity as shadow education minister and as manager of opposition business, and to Dr Foskey, explaining the need for a minor amendment to this bill to ensure full compliance with the national governance protocol. The specific protocol is:

7.5.15 Protocol 3: the higher education provider must have the duties of the members of the governing body and sanctions for the breach of these duties specified in its enabling legislation.

New section 12A specifies the duties of the members of the University of Canberra council. The current text of new section 12A (4) provides for sanctioning of members if they breach subsection (1). The duties of members are spread across subsections (1) and (2) and this amendment simply nominates a breach of either subsections (1) or (2) as grounds for sanction.

Amendment agreed to.

Bill, as a whole, as amended, agreed to.
