Review of Contestable Electricity Infrastructure Works
MR QUINLAN (Treasurer, Minister for Economic Development, Business and Tourism, and Minister for Sport, Racing and Gaming): I seek leave to make a ministerial statement with regard to contestability in the construction of electricity infrastructure work.
MR QUINLAN: When I tabled the ICRC report "Review of Contestable Electricity Infrastructure Works" on 22 June 2004, I undertook to advise the Assembly of my decision on this report's recommendations at a later date. At the time I tabled the report, I spoke about some implications of the report for employees with much needed skills in ActewAGL and for the territory's ability to respond quickly to emergencies such as the bushfires of a couple of years ago. I was also concerned to ensure that the government made a balanced decision that took into account the costs and benefit to the community as a whole over the longer term. To assist in clarifying my ideas about the ICRC's recommendations, I asked my department to advise me on the report.
