Crown Land Management (Life Lease Sites) Amendment Bill

Second Reading

Adjourned debate on second reading

(Continued from 1 March 2017)

The Hon. J.A. DARLEY (23:56): I will be brief also on these two bills and will address them at the same time. Firstly, I thank the Hon. Michelle Lensink for bringing forward these bills. It is about 28 years since life tenure leases were provided to lessees situated on Crown lands and in national parks, replacing terminating tenure, which existed for a further 19 years. On reflection, I believe these shacks should continue to exist and lessees be given the opportunity to transfer to transferable leases. With that, I support the bill.
