Hansard of the Legislative Council


Reproductive Health (Access to Terminations) Bill 2013 - Refer to Committee

Mr FINCH (Rosevears) - Mr President, I do not want to be the odd one out here.


Ms Forrest - You are already.


Mr FINCH - I am already, am I? I wanted to make a contribution, but the honourable members have covered most of the points I would have made. This bill is not time critical, as the honourable member for Windermere has noted. I believe we will get better evidence and submissions in committee, and we will have more time to consider them. As the honourable member for Pembroke said, the evidence will be under oath, and on the record, which will assist our deliberations. The committee process will be worthwhile in respect of this bill.


I support putting this investigation into committee.
