Parliament Resumes With Business Statement

When Parliament resumed at 2pm, Acting Leader of the House Simon Power said when the House sat next week the Government intended to complete the three hour debate on the financial reviews of Crown entities and make progress on the Telecommunications (TSO, Broadband, and Other Matters) Amendment Bill.

Mr Power indicated the Government was not currently considering urgency to progress the telecommunications bill and said Wednesday would be a member’s day.

A report by a parliamentary delegation to Panama and the US congress was presented.

Select committee reports were presented on the:

Supplementary Estimates of Appropriations for the year ending 30 June 2011 by the Finance and Expenditure Committee
Report from the Controller and Auditor-General on Draft annual plan 2011/12 (including the Auditor-General’s proposed work programme for 2011/12) by the Finance and Expenditure Committee
2011/12 Estimates for Vote Audit by the Finance and Expenditure Committee
Following Question Time, MPs will return to the interrupted Budget debate which has one hour and 38 minutes remaining.

After this Parliament will consider the Freedom Camping Bill in its first reading debate.
