First Aid and Mental Health in Schools (Existing Teachers) Bill 2018: First Stage

I move:

That leave be granted to introduce a Bill entitled an Act to provide for the introduction of a requirement that all existing staff in schools be trained in occupational first aid response and mental health first aid; to require that training in occupational first aid response and mental health first aid forms part of a continuing professional development requirement for school staff; to provide for the approval of first aid response courses and mental health first aid courses; and to provide for related matters.

Is there a seconder?

I second the proposal.

Question put and agreed to.

When is it proposed to take Second Stage?

Next Tuesday perhaps.

There is a lot on next Tuesday.

There always is. Is that agreed? Agreed.

Second Stage ordered for Tuesday, 8 May 2018.
Sitting suspended at 12.43 p.m. and resumed at 12.50 p.m.
