T&T Civil Aviation Authority Bill
Tuesday, May 02, 2000
Sen. Jagmohan: Mr. Chairman, I was observing in clause 32(3) where it states: “Where anything has been commenced” and so forth. I have a problem with the word “anything”, could we not say “project” or “programme of activity”?
Sen. Mark: The word “anything” covers all that. Sen. Jagmohan: Is that an appropriate word for legislation: “anything”?
Sen. Daly: The word “thing” has only recently been devalued, Mr. Chairman. [Laughter]
Mr. Chairman: Pardon me.
Sen. Daly: Perhaps it is just as well that the Chair did not hear; on reflection. There is the question of whether the word “anything” is appropriate in the legislation. Well, please respond.
Sen. Baksh: We do not see any real problem with having the word “anything”, it would incorporate everything else. It is normal.
Sen. Jagmohan: Mr. Chairman, I am not pursuing the matter any more. Question put and agreed to. Clause 32 ordered to stand part of the Bill. Clause 33 ordered to stand part of the Bill. First, Second and Third Schedules ordered to stand part of the Bill. Question put and agreed to, That the Bill be reported to the Senate. Senate resumed. Bill reported, with amendment; read the third time and passed.
Mr. President: Hon. Senators, we will proceed to lunch at this stage and resume at 1.45 p.m.
