Parliament: Speeches on Bills

Legal Services Commission (Miscellaneous) Amendment Bill

The Hon. K.L. VINCENT: I only wish to put on the record a few brief words of support for this bill and state that Dignity for Disability will be supporting it. In particular I thank the Legal Services Commission for the important service they provide in providing legal aid to people in dire need, particularly those on low incomes. The commission has, on several occasions, provided much needed assistance to several of my constituents. I want to put on the record our personal thanks for that and also to say that we did have some questions, but they have been touched on by the Hon. Mr Parnell and we will look forward to some answers. All that being said, and pending those answers, we will support the bill.
