DR M.D. NAHAN (Riverton) [12.01 pm]: I present for tabling the twelfth report of the Economics and Industry Standing Committee entitled, “Clarification of Issue from Committee Report No. 10”.

[See paper 4550.]

Dr M.D. NAHAN: Madam Acting Speaker, I anticipate this being the shortest committee chairman’s speech on record—at least for this sitting of Parliament!

Mr R.H. Cook: Go on; stretch it out!

Dr M.D. NAHAN: I could; the Deputy Leader of the Opposition complained about, let us say, the blandness of the title, but it is what it is. In response to the committee’s response to the tenth report, “Response to House: Matter of Park Home Residents”, the committee received correspondence from the Commissioner for Consumer Protection on 22 November 2011 advising of an error at paragraph 79 in relation to the reporting of amendments made to the Residential Parks (Long-stay Tenants) Act 2006. The committee considered this correspondence over the end-of-year recess, and on Monday, 20 February 2012 resolved to table the attached relevant extract from the commissioner’s correspondence as a report in order to clarify this matter. The commissioner, as we want her to be, is a stickler for detail—not only in respect of consumers and businesses, but also with Parliament—so we responded in the appropriate manner. In anticipation of this report being a bestseller, we have printed four copies; it is a limited number of copies, so members will have to get in line!
