Sixth review of the exercise of the functions of the Motor Accidents Authority and the Motor Accidents Council

The Standing Committee on Law and Justice has an ongoing role to review the exercise of the functions of the Motor Accidents Authority (MAA) and the Motor Accidents Council (MAC). The MAA is a statutory corporation that regulates the NSW Motor Accidents Scheme. It was established under the Motor Accidents Act 1988 on 10 March 1989 and continues to be constituted under the Motor Accidents Compensation Act 1999. Section 210 of the latter Act provides that a committee of the Legislative Council is to be charged with the responsibility of supervising the exercise of the functions of the MAA and the MAC. The Legislation Council appointed the Standing Committee on Law and Justice to undertake this role in November 1999 and has reappointed the Law and Justice Committee in the current Parliament. The text of the resolution appointing the Committee is set out under the heading 'Inquiry Terms of Reference'. This is the Committee's sixth review of the exercise of the functions of the MAA and the MAC. The Committee tabled its report on 20 May 2005.
