Question Without Notice No. 1568 asked in the Legislative Council on 5 December 2019 by Hon Simon O’Brien

Minister responding: Hon S.M. Ellery
Parliament: 40 Session: 1

Answered on

BUILDING AND CONSTRUCTION INDUSTRY TRAINING FUNDAND LEVY COLLECTION ACT — REVIEW

1568. Hon SIMON O'BRIEN to the Minister for Education and Training:

I refer to the minister's ministerial statement earlier today about the statutory review of the Building and Construction Industry Training Fund and Levy Collection Act 1990, and the minister's intention to respond to recommendation 11 by immediately amending the act to allow for more flexible levy payment schedules.

(1) When might we expect to see a bill before the house?

(2) When would the amended regime commence?

Hon SUE ELLERY replied:

(1)–(2) Cabinet has approved permission to draft the legislation to give effect to those changes, so that has been done. I will have to check and get back to the honourable member about the date of commencement. As it reads right now, the act is quite limited, so I do not think that the changes can come into effect before the legislation is dealt with by the house. I will check and get back to the member.
