Evidence (Reporting on Sexual Offences) Amendment Bill

Second Reading

I will start by addressing matters that have been raised by the member for Mount Gambier, who has indicated that he will not be supporting the bill. I fully respect the matters that have been outlined by him and the decision that he has come to in relation to his proposed opposition to the bill.

Stephen Wade in the other place, who has supervised the passage of the bill through the Legislative Council, and, indeed, a number of the members on all sides of the parliament in that place, in a political sense, who undertook quite a lot of work in the development of what is ultimately before us in the bill.
