T&T Civil Aviation Authority Bill
Tuesday, May 02, 2000
Mr. Chairman: Hon. Members, this is a Bill that contains three clauses divided into seven Parts, plus three Schedules. Since there are no proposed amendments, do I have your consent to deal with the Bill in Parts and, if there are any clauses within those Parts, we treat with those clauses separately? Is that in order?
Assent indicated. Clause 1 ordered to stand part of the Bill. Clause 2.
Sen. Dr. St. Cyr: Mr. Chairman, there is no clause 7(2) (f), so I suspect that may be 6(2)(f).
Mr. Chairman: Shall we treat it as typographical? Thank you, Senator. Clause 2 ordered to stand part of the Bill. Clauses 3 to 8 ordered to stand part of the Bill. Clause 9. Question proposed, That clause 9 stand part of the Bill.
Sen. Dr. St. Cyr: Mr. Chairman, I am worried about the phrase, “to the Director General or an employee of the Authority”, because it seems to me that the authority, meaning the board, can bypass the director and delegate to his subordinates and this would be a very wrong principle. So I am wondering if the hon. Minister would consider deleting the words, “or an employee of the Authority”.
Sen. Baksh: Mr. Chairman, we have no objections to it.
Mr. Chairman: So, shall we delete the words, “or an employee”? The amendment to clause 9 would then be to delete the following words in line two, “or an employee”.
Question put and agreed to. Clause 9, as amended, ordered to stand part of the Bill. Clause 10 ordered to stand part of the Bill. Clause 11. Question proposed, That clause 11 stand part of the Bill.
