Inquiry into the Independent Commissioner Against Corruption (Consequential and Related Amendments) Bill 2017 10 1 Introduction Introduction of the Bill 1.1 The Independent Commissioner Against Corruption (Consequential and Related Amendments) Bill 2017 (the Bill) was introduced into the Legislative Assembly by the Attorney-General and Minister for Justice, the Hon Natasha Fyles MLA, on 19 October 2017. The Assembly subsequently referred the Bill to the Social Policy Scrutiny Committee for inquiry and report by 6 February 2018.1 Conduct of the Inquiry 1.2 In accordance with its Standard Procedures for Bill Inquiries, on 20 October 2017 the Committee called for submissions by 8 November 2017. The call for submissions was advertised via media release, the Legislative Assembly website, Facebook, Twitter feed and email subscription service. The Committee did not receive any submissions to its inquiry. 1.3 The Bill and associated Explanatory Statement was forwarded to Professor Ned Aughterson for review of fundamental legislative principles under Sessional Order 13(4)(c). On 10 November 2017, the Committee wrote to the Attorney-General and Minister for Justice seeking a response to the issues raised by Professor Aughterson. Outcome of Committees Consideration 1.4 Sessional order 13(4)(c) requires that the Committee after examining the Bill determine: (i) whether the Assembly should pass the bill; (ii) whether the Assembly should amend the bill; (iii) whether the bill has sufficient regard to the rights and liberties of individuals; and (iv) whether the bill has sufficient regard to the institution of Parliament. 1.5 Following examination of the Bill, and consideration of the evidence received, the Committee is of the view that the Legislative Assembly should pass the Bill with the amendment proposed in Recommendation 2. Recommendation 1 The Committee recommends that the Legislative Assembly pass the Independent Commissioner Against Corruption (Consequential and Related Amendments) Bill 2017 with the amendment proposed in Recommendation 2. 1 Parliamentary Record, (Hansard) and Minutes of Proceedings, 13th Assembly, Debates, 19/10/2017, pp.2-6, https://parliament.nt.gov.au/business/hansard/draft/DEBATES-DAY-6-19-OCTOBER-2017.pdf https://parliament.nt.gov.au/business/hansard/draft/DEBATES-DAY-6-19-OCTOBER-2017.pdf
