TO THE HONOURABLE SPEAKER AND MEMBERS OF THE LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY OF THE NORTHERN TERRITORY PETITION WE THE UNDERSIGNED RESPECTFULLY SHOWETH That working Territorians over the pension age are not entitled to compensation for loss of earning capacity under section 13, subsection 5 (a) of the Motor Accident (Compensation) Act (NT). That working Territorians over the pension age pay for Motor Vehicle Registration annually, and the registration fee includes a compulsory contribution to the Motor Accident Compensation scheme. That working Territorians over the pension age are paying for an insurance service that they are statute-barred from receiving, and that this amounts to age based discrimination and possibly unlawful fees being charged by the Northern Territory Government. YOUR PETITIONERS THEREFORE HUMBLY PRAY THAT the Northern Territory Government launch an immediate and urgent review of section 13 of the Motor Accident (Compensation) Act (NT) AND YOUR PETITIONERS, AS W DUTY BOUND, WILL EVER PRAY.
