We acknowledge that this Bill is a part of a raft of justice-related reforms the Government is implementing. In its last term, the Government passed 18 justice-related pieces of legislation.

This Bail Amendment Bill 2012 comes on the heels of the Corrections Amendment Bill 2012, and the Administration of Community Sentences and Orders Amendment Bill 2012.

While we applaud this focus on justice issues, we entreat our Government to continue to consider some of the issues that we have raised on past submissions and reports in the justice area.
