time’s up

Mr R.F. JOHNSON: […] Authorised persons will have to return their ID cards; if they do not, they will face quite a substantial monetary penalty.

Mr J.N. Hyde: But clauses 51 and 52 specify that there has to be an expiry date. A WA Police officer will have a normal expiry date on his ID card.


Mr J.N. Hyde: But surely, in many cases, that will exceed the expiry date of the CHOGM legislation.

Mr R.F. JOHNSON: Yes; of course it will. The deputy commissioner’s warrant card and badge will not expire at the end of CHOGM.

Ms M.M. Quirk: He will feel like expiring!

Mr R.F. JOHNSON: He might do! He might do after spending all this time in this chamber. However, his badge and his warrant card—as it is today—will be in place during CHOGM and will continue to be in place until, I suspect, the deputy commissioner wants to take up early retirement. After the time he has spent in this chamber, that might be sooner rather than later!
