Question Without Notice No. 9 asked in the Legislative Council on 12 February 2019 by Hon Alison Xamon

Parliament: 40 Session: 1

Answered on 12 February 2019


9. Hon ALISON XAMON to the Leader of the House representing the Attorney General:

I refer to the Corruption, Crime and Misconduct Amendment Bill 2017.

(1) Has a draft memorandum of understanding between the houses of Parliament and the Corruption and Crime Commission been finalised?

(2) If no to (1), when will it be finalised?

(3) If yes to (1), please table the proposed draft memorandum of understanding.

Hon SUE ELLERY replied:

I thank the honourable member for some notice of the question.

(1) No.

(2)–(3) I am advised by the Corruption and Crime Commission that the Speaker of the Legislative Assembly and the President of the Legislative Council are yet to finalise the draft memorandum of understanding for the commission's consideration. The last update received by the CCC in February 2018 was that it was awaiting the outcome of the Australian Senate Standing Committee of Privileges inquiry into the execution of search warrants on senators.
