                       BILLS PRESENTED IN THE LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY ON 20 APRIL 2005

The following Bills were presented —

Planning (Amendment) Bill 2005:
This Bill is introduced, to enable development control plans to be enforced where required by regulation. At present the
Planning Act and the Regulations only allow enforcement of breaches of the Act and of Development Approvals.

The amendment allows Regulations to be made to enable compliance with a development control plan and to require
that where there is a breach that can be rectified a reasonable time is to be given and failure to comply may attract a
penalty at the allowable rate already provided by the Act (10 penalty units) or a daily penalty can be applied up to a limit
of 2 penalty units per day. The Bill passed through all stages.

Departure Fee (Amendment) Bill 2005:
This Bill is introduced to correct a recent anomaly created by airline operators utilising Norfolk Island residents as
members of cabin crew. The Bill passed through all stages.

Healthcare (Amendment No. 2) Bill 2005:
This Bill is introduced to correct an anomaly in the existing Act which entitles recovery by deduction from any refund due
to a person ceasing to be liable to pay the levy, any moneys owing to the Administration. This entitlement does not
include moneys owing to the Hospital or other statutory corporations which means that from time to time it has been
necessary to take costly steps to recover moneys owing for hospital and other charges.

Customs (Amendment) Bill 2005:
This Bill proposes to prohibit the importation of helicopters into Norfolk Island. It is done to ensure and preserve the
amenity of the Island and the welfare of its residents. The Bill passed through all stages.

Copies of the Bill free of charge may be obtained from Mrs Jan Keeping, Legal Services, Norfolk Island Administration,
Kingston.

Dated 20 April 2005.
