National Redress Scheme for Institutional Child Sexual Abuse Amendment (Technical Amendments) Bill 2020; In Committee
We would be happy, with the chamber's indulgence—I think everyone knows their voting intention—to move them separately but have one-minute divisions, if that's appropriate.
The TEMPORARY CHAIR: I think the first division might end up being a four-minute division, looking at the whips.
Of course. Naturally, that would be the case. Therefore, I move opposition amendment (2) on sheet 1196 revised:
(2) Schedule 1, page 15 (after line 13), after Part 6, insert:
Part 6A—Naming and shaming non-participating institutions
National Redress Scheme for Institutional Child Sexual Abuse Act 2018
48A At the end of Division 3 of Part 5-1
116A Naming and shaming non-participating institutions
(1) This section applies to a non-government institution if:
(i) an application made under section 19 identifies the institution as being involved in the abuse of a person; or
(ii) information given in response to a request under section 24 or 25, in relation to an application made under section 19, identifies the institution as being involved in the abuse of a person; and
(b) the application has not been withdrawn under section 22; and
(c) the institution is not a participating non-government institution.
(2) If the institution refuses to participate in the scheme, the Minister must publish a notice stating that, despite the matters mentioned in paragraphs (1) (a) and (b), the institution refuses to participate in the scheme.
Institution has 6 months to become a participating institution after first application etc. that identifies institution
(3) The Minister must not publish a notice under subsection (2) in relation to the institution until the end of 6 months after the first time subparagraph (1) (a) (i) or (ii) applies in relation to the institution.
The CHAIR: The question is that amendment (2) on sheet 1196, moved by Senator Pratt, be agreed to.
