Courts Matters Bill and Tribunals Powers and Procedures Legislation Bill- First Reading – Video 5


kyouda Mr Speaker I called Maureen pure Thank You mr. speaker and I too stand in support of this court matters bill the tribunal powers in procedures legislation Berlin its first reading here today and it is quite a nostalgic day as we recognize that the justice and electoral Select Committee under the the guidance of its chair Sarah Dowie and the Law & Order Select Committee under the stewardship of Cohn well but she will no longer exist when this bill is referred in the new Parliament presumably it will be then called the super justice committee or just the Justice Select Committee so this is a very much in line with the government’s direction in its tidying up of old legislation and bringing the language into modern language and streamlining some of the processes taking into account the modern world that we do live in today and we are going to be streamlining some of the powers and procedures that the tribunals in the courts undertake and especially in the tribunals where we’ve heard from the former speaker the 21 tribunals that are administered by the Ministry of Justice so they all have a common set of powers in procedures to operate under and that certainly will create some administer efficiencies so we’ve also hear today about the the real estate disciplinary tribunal and the ability for them now to take even stronger action to award compensation of up to $100,000 for financial losses that will be significant for that sector and also the private security personnel licensing authority being able to discipline their licensees and their certificate holders if they are found to be in breach of the conduct in conduct unbecoming of that trade such as bullying other forms of misconduct the bill sets out also to disestablish one defunct tribunal the bird Ling’s flat land title’s Commissioner as the minister pointed out earlier today is in her electorate and I note that buidlings flat and it’s close to the shores of Lake Ellesmere and was named after the buidling buidling family that were the first European settlers there to farm the area and of significance to me it’s also the place that I caught my very first fish I’m very famous for its fishing down there at buidlings flat so this also this also also deer just establishes two other tribunals the boards of Appeal under the Health Act of 1956 in the maritime appeal authority under the maritime transport Act of 1994 so this government is not afraid of creating efficiencies in transparency within any of the organizations that we take responsibility for and and not especially not in our courts and tribunals so we are quite happy that these changes will be to reflect the needs of today and in creating some timely and specialist dispute resolution resolution outside of the court system the bill also aims to improve the tribunal scope to hear cases and again that will make them more accessible for dispute resolution and also providing a better consumer protection and redress for people because these tribunals are simply quicker and cheaper alternatives then going off to very time-consuming and expensive court case the opinion amendments to the fine enforcement also improves customer services in the courts and the productivity and also gives credibility to the fines regime I know there are quite a few stories that we hear about people who have been imposed with a fine but sometimes it’s quite difficult for the courts to recover those fines so this this sets out to make that a more efficient this government has also implemented other reforms to our justice system recently and may it makes it easier for people to understand to participate in and to use it provides the flexibility and responsiveness that we would expect from our judicial system and of course it is transparent these bills sir I have great pleasure in supporting and commend them to the house I call David Clinton Thank You mr. speaker I’m pleased to take a call on this these cotton eight bills that
