Tuesday, 23 June 2009

Notice not conforming with standing orders
Ruling by Speaker
MR SPEAKER: Members, I wish to make a ruling on a notice on the notice paper. Last week Mr Coe lodged a notice to amend Disallowable Instrument 2009-68, which is the Road Transport (Public Passenger Services) Regular Route Services Maximum Fares Determination 2009 (No 2).
Government-sourced advice provided to me by the Chief Minister indicated that the instrument cannot be amended. As such, after discussing the matter with the Clerk, I believe the notice contravenes standing order 77(i), and I am therefore ruling the notice out of order and instructing the Clerk to remove the notice from the notice paper.
Justice and Community Safety—Standing Committee
Scrutiny report 8
MRS DUNNE: I present the following report:
Justice and Community Safety—Standing Committee (performing the duties of a Scrutiny of Bills and Subordinate Legislation Committee)—Scrutiny Report 8, dated 22 June 2009, together with the relevant minutes of proceedings.
I seek leave to make a brief statement.
MRS DUNNE: Scrutiny report 8 contains the committee’s comments on 41 pieces of subordinate legislation and two government responses. The report was circulated to members when the Assembly was not sitting. I commend the report to the Assembly.
Motion (by Ms Le Couteur) agreed to:
That Ms Bresnan be discharged from the Select Committee on Privileges and that Ms Hunter be appointed in her place.
