Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 1996 Week 13 Hansard (4 December) . . Page.. 4400..
MR SPEAKER: I present, for the information of members, Auditor-General's Report No. 9 of 1996, entitled "ACT Cultural Development Funding Program".
MR HUMPHRIES (Attorney-General) (3.24): Mr Speaker, I seek leave to move a motion authorising the publication of the Auditor-General's report.
MR HUMPHRIES: I thank members. I move:
That the Assembly authorises the publication of Auditor-General's Report No. 9 of 1996.
Question resolved in the affirmative.
MR DE DOMENICO (Minister for Urban Services): For the information of members, and pursuant to the Territory Owned Corporations Act 1990, I present the Memorandum and Articles of Association for ACTEW Energy Ltd and the Memorandum and Articles of Association for ACTEW Investments Pty Ltd.
MR HUMPHRIES (Attorney-General) (3.25): Mr Speaker, for the information of members, I present a discussion paper entitled "The possible establishment of a correctional facility in the Australian Capital Territory". I move:
That the Assembly takes note of the paper.
I have presented a discussion paper on the possible establishment of a correctional facility in the ACT. This long-awaited paper is for the information of members and, more importantly perhaps, for the wider community, in order to have a full debate about this important proposal. The paper is the most significant options study we have had on the establishment of a full correctional facility in the ACT. It is not final Government policy and it should not be read as a management plan. It should, however, be read as it was intended - a paper designed to generate public discussion and informed debate on the options and issues surrounding the establishment of a correctional facility.
