Future Drought Fund Bill 2019; Second Reading
by leave—I have raised this matter with the government and with the opposition. There it is just a typo change to the amendment that has been circulated. Where it says 'that all of the words after "very same"', that should read as 'that all words after "rural and regional"'. Very briefly, the effect of that is that the proposed amendment that I have moved would add all words after the amendment moved by the member for Hunter. It wouldn't alter the substance of the member for Hunter's amendment. That was the intention of it; it was just a short drafting change. I understand that, with the leave of the House, that change is acceptable to the remainder of the House.
