motion today. This motion provides the same protections for the human rights commissioner’s report as may apply to reports of this place which are published out of session.

On reading the motion, I think it needs some clarification, in that report is from the Human Rights Commission rather than the human rights commissioner.

Amendment agreed to.

In the report of the Standing Committee on Justice and Community Safety on the annual and financial reports 2009-10, the committee makes only a small number of recommendations but they are about things that are really important. Some of them
