Promised Review of Auctioneers Has Not Yet Materialised

Posted on: February 12th, 2004

The Minister came to the House and pledged that a commission would be set up to look into the activities of auctioneers and to make recommendations with a view to regulating the area or introducing legislation. No such body has been set up. I ask the Leader to consider making representations to the Department that if pledges of that sort are made to this House, they should be kept.

It is not good enough that promises made by a Minister in this House should be ignored by his officials. I am not pointing a sword or a finger at the auctioneering business. I am just looking for a review, which was promised last May and has not materialised.
