    1 The Statutes (Repeals and Minor Amendments) Bill 2001 (“the Bill”) was referred to the Standing Committee on Legislation (“the Committee”) on March 13 2003.

    2 The Committee previously considered the Bill when it was referred by the Legislative Council on August 1 2001. The Committee reported to the Legislative Council on March 12 2002 in Report Number 11.

    3 The Committee understands that the Bill has again been referred to the Committee for consideration of the proposed amendments in Supplementary Notice Paper Number 31, Issue Number 3 (January 16 2003). In Report Number 11, the Committee considered the proposed amendments to the Bill contained in Supplementary Notice Paper Number 31, Issue Number 1 (October 8 2001) and recommended that the Bill be amended accordingly.

    4 There are additional amendments in Supplementary Notice Paper Number 31, Issue Number 3 that were not contained in Supplementary Notice Paper Number 31, Issue Number 1 which the Committee considers in this Report. These amendments relate to:
      clause 55 (amendments to the Fish Resources Management Act 1994);
      clause 90 (amendments to the Parliamentary Commissioner Act 1971);
      clause 117 (amendment to the Tobacco Control Act 1990); and
      new clause 25 (amendment to the Agriculture and Related Resources Protection Act 1976).

    5 Of the proposed additional amendments, the Committee does not support the amendment pertaining to the Tobacco Control Act 1990.

    6 In this Report, the Committee has also made suggestions as to the process to be followed in the future when dealing with omnibus bills to ensure efficient passage through Parliament.
