VICTIMS OF CRIME (COMPENSATION) AMENDMENT BILL

Second Reading

Adjourned debate on second reading.

(Continued from 18 June 2015.)

Ms CHAPMAN ( Bragg—Deputy Leader of the Opposition) (16:56): I rise to speak on the Victims of Crime (Compensation) Amendment Bill 2015 and, on this occasion, welcome this bill and indicate that the opposition will support the same. We do propose amendments, and I will refer to those shortly. Essentially, the bill is to amend the Victims of Crime Act 2001. The Victims of Crime compensation scheme compensates people who are injured by crime, and this, of course, can include mental as well as physical injury. There is no proposal to expand the area of compensation outside of that, but there is, currently, a proposal to expand the amount available in certain circumstances. There has been no increase in the compensation available under the scheme since 1990, with a maximum payout of $50,000.

TATTOOING INDUSTRY CONTROL BILL

Second Reading

Adjourned debate on second reading.

(Continued from 10 September 2015.)

Ms CHAPMAN ( Bragg—Deputy Leader of the Opposition) (17:18): I rise to speak on the Tattooing Industry Control Bill 2015 and indicate that I will be the lead speaker for the opposition. As I understand it there are a number of our members in the parliament who wish to make a contribution in this regard. In speaking on this bill, introduced by the Attorney-General on 10 September, I will say in opening that I was little surprised to see this bill. The Australian Labor Party made an election commitment to ban organised crime gangs through their association with the owning or controlling of tattoo parlours and pawn shops, and there was considerable discussion during a recent raft of legislation—bills that were colloquially known as the 'bikie legislation'—during July of this year.
