Question so resolved in the affirmative.

Bill agreed to in principle.

Detail stage

Bill, by leave, taken as a whole.

MR CORBELL (Molonglo—Attorney-General, Minister for Police and Emergency Services, Minister for Workplace Safety and Industrial Relations and Minister for the Environment and Sustainable Development) (11.40): Pursuant to standing order 182A(a), I seek leave to move amendments Nos 1 to 25 circulated in my name together.

Leave not granted.

Standing orders—suspension

Motion (by Mr Corbell) proposed:

That so much of the standing orders be suspended as would prevent Mr Corbell from moving his amendments.

MR HANSON (Molonglo—Leader of the Opposition) (11.40): We are not supporting leave because these amendments are simply not in order. If you go to the standing orders, standing order 182A states:

An amendment to be proposed by the Government to its own bill must be considered and reported on by the Scrutiny Committee before it can be moved.

Madam Speaker, that has not occurred. As we know, these amendments have been rushed through at the 11th hour. The amendment goes on to say:

By leave of the Assembly, this standing order may be dispensed with on the grounds that an amendment is:

(a) urgent; or

(b) minor or technical in nature; or

(c) in response to comment made by the Scrutiny Committee.
