Legislative Council (Remuneration and Allowances)(Amendment) Bill 2018
This Ordinance amends the remuneration, allowances and benefits payable to Members of the Legislative Council, Speaker and Deputy Speaker to which they are entitled under the Legislative Council (Remuneration and Allowances) Ordinance, 2010.
Charities (Amendment) Bill
This Ordinance amends the Charities Ordinance, 2005, to require charitable organisations that deal primarily with vulnerable adults to develop and maintain a safeguarding policy with respect to these beneficiaries. Failure to comply with the safeguarding policy may result in the organisation being removed from the register. The Ordinance also makes provision for payment of a civil penalty to the Commission in the event of failure by an organisation to submit an updated annual report with respect to the implementation of its safeguarding policy. The penalty also applies for failure by charitable organisations to submit annual financial statements and accounts.
