Study trip

Paper

Mr Speaker presented the following paper:

Study trip-Report by Mr Hird, MLA-Sydney, NSW-19 April 2001.

Annual reports-directions for 2001-2002

Paper and statement by minister

MR HUMPHRIES (Chief Minister, Minister for Community Affairs and Treasurer): For the information of members, I present the following paper:

Annual Reports (Government Agencies) Act-Annual Reports, 2001-2002-

Chief Minister's Directions for 2000-2001, together with an instrument revoking, declaring, directing, and fixing matters as set out in the schedule to the instrument.

I ask for leave to make a statement.

Leave granted.

MR HUMPHRIES: This instrument is issued in accordance with section 15 of the act and provides the framework for the 2000-01 annual reports. The instrument includes the annual reports directions for the reporting year. Under the annual reports act, these instruments must be tabled, although they are not disallowable. While there are some mandatory requirements, the directions should be seen as setting the baseline for reporting. Because the directions cover a wide range of reporting bodies, they must be sufficiently flexible to permit accurate and appropriate reporting across a range of operational requirements.

Under the act, all reports must be presented to ministers within 10 weeks of the end of the reporting year. This means-members of the Labor Party should note this-that all financial year reports must be presented to ministers by 8 September 2001. Ministers will then have six sitting days in which to table reports. Reports will again be tabled as soon as possible. This year, all reports will be formally tabled during the first six sitting days following the scheduled 2001 Assembly election.
