Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2002 Week 13 Hansard (21 November) . . Page.. 4056..


Litter Act

(Question No 335)

Mr Cornwell asked the Minister for Urban Services, upon notice:

In relation to your letter of 29 April 2002 that your department was developing a proposal to revise and update the Litter Act 1977 "which is expected to be introduced into the Assembly during the Spring 2002 sittings":

(1) Where is the proposed legislation.

(2) Will the registered owner of a motor vehicle now be liable for a littering offence from the vehicle.

(3) If (2) is negative, why not.

Mr Wood: The answer to the member's questions is as follows:

(1) The Litter Bill was not included in the legislation program for the Spring 2002 sitting period. The proposed legislation is currently in the early stages of development and the government proposes to introduce the Litter Bill in the Autumn 2003 sitting period.

(2) One of the options that will be raised for consideration in the Litter Bill is allowing an infringement notice to be issued to the registered owner of a motor vehicle from which littering occurs. This would place the onus on the registered owner to establish who was driving the vehicle at the time.

Department of Urban Services

(Question No 337)

Mr Cornwell asked the Minister for Urban Services, upon notice:

In relation to the September 2002 Quarterly Performance Report for Urban Services.

(1) How do you assess a ETD % progress against target of 101% for a percentage result of 81% for Call Centre waiting times (output 1.1 Canberra Connect).

(2) If maintenance on municipal roads is zero at present because work only can be done November to March what does the expenditure of $2.6 million for this item represent (output 1.2 Roads).

Mr Wood: The answer to the member's questions is as follows:

(1) For quarterly reporting purposes, the Department is required to provide the Assembly with a year-to-date progress report of performance against annual targets. For this measure a result of 81 % was achieved for the September Quarter against an annual target of 80%. Therefore the progress against target of 101 % is achieved by dividing the actual result (81%) by the target (80%).
