Standing Committee (performing the duties of a Scrutiny of Bills and Subordinate Legislation Committee)—Scrutiny Report 49, dated 15 March 2012, together with the relevant minutes of proceedings.

I seek leave to make a brief statement.

Statement by chair

MRS DUNNE (Ginninderra): Pursuant to standing order 246A I wish to make a statement on behalf of the Standing Committee on Justice and Community Safety performing the duties of a scrutiny of bill and subordinate legislation committee.

The proposed government amendments to the Long Service Leave (Portable Schemes) Amendment Bill 2011 concern the time within which an application for internal review must be made and ensure that a decision on such review is reviewable by the ACT Civil and Administrative Tribunal.

The committee has examined these amendments and has no comment to make.
