Elsewhere, there will be registers that people can look at to see who is disqualified and who has a licence. It is implied but not yet expressed that the annual report, which is an important part of the accountability process, would be listed and could be found immediately on publication, first, in the place where one looks for the other information that has been referred to in part 5, and secondly, automatically on a website on the day of publication, so that as soon as an ASB published its annual report, it would go up on the site, people would have up-to-date information and its production would ensure maximum transparency.

Question put and agreed to.

Clause 110 ordered to stand part of the Bill.
