Question resolved in the affirmative.

That the report be noted.

Thank you, Mr Speaker, and I thank members. This first report of the Standing Committee on Health and Disability is not lengthy. It deals with the scrutiny of annual reports and makes no particular recommendations. We looked at the annual financial reports of both the department of health and the Department of Disability, Housing and Community Services.

The report talks about the purpose and intent of annual reports and the conduct of inquiry. It then goes into specific areas. It talks about the ACT mental health official visitors annual report 2003, the Department of Disability, Housing and Community Services and Healthpact. It goes into the Community and Health Services Complaints Commissioner and ACT Health. At the end we acknowledge the potential impact imposed by the Human Rights and Service Review Commission, or the HRSRC, on the functions, activities, agencies and areas within the disability, housing and community
