Section 139AZ(2) is amended by omitting

This Supplementary Order Paper amends the Education Amendment Bill (No 2) to increase the fine for a breach of an order made by the Disciplinary Tribunal (to provide for a hearing to be held in private; or provide for evidence at a hearing to be given in private; or impose restrictions on the publication of any information relating to a particular hearing) to $100,000. This is a substantial increase which will act as a serious deterrent for breaches of orders.
