The Business Committee noted a paper from the government regarding Legislative Consent Motions (LCMs) for Bills which will be introduced into Parliament during the forthcoming session (May 2012 – May 2013) and setting out how the Leader of the House intended to approach these to ensure appropriate scrutiny of LCMs.


The Business Committee noted that they would give further consideration to the processes for proper scrutiny of LCMs once the Constitutional and Legislative Affairs Committee has reported on its inquiry.
