Ms ROXON (GellibrandAttorney-General) (12:39): by leave—I present the supplementary explanatory memorandum to the bill and move government amendments (1) to (3) on sheet AF224 and amendments (1) and (2) on sheet BN232 together as circulated:

(1) Clause 2, page 3 (at the end of the table), add:

16. Schedule 9

The day this Act receives the Royal Assent.

(2) Schedule 4, item 1, page 38 (line 10), at the end of paragraph (b) of the definition of constable, add "or Territory".

Schedule 9—Re-appointment of Integrity Commissioner

Omit "5 years" (second occurring), substitute "7 years".

2 Application

The amendment made by item 1 of this Schedule applies in relation to a person appointed or re-appointed as the Law Enforcement Integrity Commissioner before, on or after the commencement of this item.

(1) Schedule 2, item 27, page 27 (lines 3 to 5), omit paragraph 59AB(1)(e), substitute:

(e) disclosing the ACC information:

   (i) would not prejudice the safety of a person, or prejudice the fair trial of a person who has been charged with an offence; and

(ii) would not be contrary to a law of the Commonwealth, a State or a Territory that would otherwise apply.

(2) Schedule 2, item 27, page 28 (line 3), at the end of subsection 59AB(4), add:

; and (c) one or more conditions that the body corporate must meet in order to ensure that the information is not used or disclosed in a way that might prejudice the reputation of a person.

Given the indulgence of the chamber, I will not be speaking to these amendments but I do want to put on record my appreciation both to the House committee which made some sensible recommendations that are included in these amendments and to the opposition for accommodating this so that this important bill can move to the Senate, where a more detailed explanation will be provided in that debate.

Question agreed to.

Bill, as amended, agreed to.

Ordered that the bill be reported to the House with amendments.
