Question so resolved in the negative.

Community Services and Social Equity-Standing Committee

Statement by chair

MR HARGREAVES: Mr Speaker, I seek leave to make a statement regarding a new inquiry.

Leave granted.

MR HARGREAVES: Mr Speaker, the Standing Committee on Community Services and Social Equity has resolved to conduct an inquiry into and report on the youth services at the adolescent day unit. The committee has visited the adolescent day unit, spoken to the people there, both the clients and the staff, and is about to hear from the department. This statement is merely a mechanism by which the committee can report to the Assembly, having looked into that matter.

Education-Standing Committee

Statement by chair

MS MacDONALD: Mr Speaker, I seek leave to make statement regarding a new inquiry.

Leave granted.

MS MacDONALD: The Standing Committee on Education has resolved to conduct an inquiry into and report on teacher numbers and recruitment within the ACT, with particular reference to:

current make-up of teachers in pre-schools, schools, colleges and CIT;

training of teachers in the ACT;

current average/median age of teachers in the ACT;

recruitment practice by the ACT Department of Education, Youth and Family Services;

recruitment practices of interstate departments; and

any related matter.

Mr Speaker, the committee looks forward to receiving submissions regarding this inquiry. We believe it is an important inquiry, given the ageing population and the pressures placed on schools, colleges and the CIT.
