                Speaker's Statement - Firearms (Miscellaneous) Amendment Bill

                The Speaker informed the House that the amendment was the same as that considered on 3 March and reminded the House of his statement on 9 March which explained how this reconsideration became necessary.

                The Legislative Council had declared its proceedings subsequent to the motion that the incorrect Bill be read a second time, null and void.  It was therefore necessary for the Council to pass its amendment again as well as agreeing to the remainder of the corrected Bill.  Despite the fact that the amendment was identical the Speaker ruled that the same question rule did not apply as the amendment was made by the Legislative Council to the corrected Bill.

 

                Ordered - That the Message be taken into consideration on motion.
