For Mr JENNINGS (Special Minister of State), Mr Herbert 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 Veterans and Other Acts Amendment Bill 2015 (the bill).
In my opinion, 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 makes a number of amendments to various consumer acts to clarify and improve their operation and to correct a number of minor and technical errors.
