  • I can say on behalf of the Greens, as is the case with all other parties, we will not be opposing the motion that is calling for documents. I listened to Mr Young's explanation as to why he has brought forward the motion.

  • I am very pleased to speak on the Sex Offenders Registration Amendment (Miscellaneous) Bill 2017, which is before us this evening. The main purpose of the bill is to introduce some very important registration exemption orders under the Sex Offenders Registration Act 2004 (SORA). I am very pleased to see these reforms being introduced by the government. That, I would say, is the main reason for the bill and the main impetus behind the bill, but it also makes some other changes, particularly with regard to the collection of forensics samples, fingerprints and finger scans from those people who are currently on the sex offenders register and for whom the police do not have those forensics samples.
