 8 AVIATION TRANSPORT SECURITY BILL 2003

The order of the day having been read for the resumption of the debate on the question—That the Bill be now read a second time—And on the amendment moved thereto by Mr M. J. Ferguson, viz.—That all words after "That" be omitted with a view to substituting the following words: "while not declining to give the Bill a second reading, the House:

(1) condemns the Government for the unnecessary confusion that will be caused by its insistence on using a whole new terminology in its legislation instead of using and building on the terminology already used in the industry and recognised internationally;

(2) calls on the Government to ensure that the regulations spell out agreed, clear and consistent roles and responsibilities for land-side security between the different operators and authorities;

(3) calls on the Government to improve the accountability and transparency of the aviation security rule making, compliance and incident investigation governance arrangements;

(4) calls on the Government to discuss with industry appropriate ways to close the security gap caused by the ability of unscreened service personnel and unchecked vehicles to access aircraft;


(5) calls on the Government to impose stricter controls, cross-checking and audit arrangements on who is using ASIC passes, to minimise the number of missing passes;

(6) calls on the Government to use the proceeds from the Ansett `ticket tax' to have screening equipment and related physical infrastructure provided in respect of the airports at:

 (a) Burnie;

(b) Devonport;

(c) Dubbo;

(d) Albury;

(e) Wagga Wagga;

(f) Gladstone

(g) Port Lincoln;

(h) Tamworth;

(i) Port Macquarie; and

(j) Kingscote

 if requested by the relevant airport managers;

(7) calls on the Government to require that the regulator consult formally with aviation industrial organisations on an ongoing basis in respect of security matters; and

(8) calls on the Minister to ask the House Transport and Regional Services Committee to conduct a post-implementation review of the new security arrangements within 12 months of the Bill's commencement"—
