COUNCIL Statement of compatibility PHILIP DALIDAKIS

For Ms PULFORD (Minister for Agriculture), Mr Dalidakis tabled following statement in accordance with Charter of Human Rights and Responsibilities Act 2006:

In accordance with section 28 of the Charter of Human Rights and Responsibilities Act 2006 (the charter), I make this statement of compatibility with respect to the Transport (Compliance and Miscellaneous) Amendment (Abolition of the Penalty Fares Scheme) Bill 2016.

In my opinion, the Transport (Compliance and Miscellaneous) Amendment (Abolition of the Penalty Fares Scheme) Bill 2016 (the bill) as introduced to the Legislative Council is compatible with human rights as set out in the charter. I base my opinion on the reasons outlined in this statement.

The bill amends the Transport (Compliance and Miscellaneous) Act 1983 to abolish the on-the-spot penalty fares scheme, and to make minor and technical changes.

No charter rights are relevant to the amendments made by the bill and, as such, no charter rights are limited by the bill.

The Hon. Jaala Pulford, MP
Minister for Agriculture
