Background Checking Legislation Amendment Bill 2022

I had the opportunity to resume debate on the Background Checking Legislation Amendment Bill 2022, which seeks to amend the Children and Young People and Working with Vulnerable People (Background Checking) Acts in ways that primarily align with recommendations made by the Royal Commission on Working with Children Checks almost 8 years ago. Other amendments resolve technical and operational issues that have come to light since the commencement of the original Act. Although these amendments are long overdue, I was please to finally commend them to the Assembly.
