INDIGENOUS AFFAIRS LEGISLATION AMENDMENT BILL (No. 2) 2011

 

Government amendment

 

 

OUTLINE

 

This amendment is to withdraw from the Bill the measure allowing the Minister to delegate the power to appoint a person to act as the Executive Director of Township Leasing or the Coordinator-General for Remote Indigenous Services (Schedule 2).

 

As introduced, this measure would have amended both the Aboriginal Land Rights (Northern Territory) Act 1976 and the Coordinator-General for Remote Indigenous Services Act 2009 to allow the Minister to delegate to the Secretary or a Deputy Secretary of the Department the power to make these acting appointments.

 

During Parliamentary consideration of this Schedule, members of Parliament raised issues that require further discussion on operational details.

 

The Government will therefore withdraw Schedule 2, to enable other elements of the Bill to proceed.

 

Financial impact statement

 

There is no financial impact from this amendment.
