Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2006 Week 6 Hansard (7 June) . . Page.. 1848..
MR BARR: I may have signed that answer at lunchtime, so it will be with Mr Smyth later today.
Question No 1095
MR SMYTH: I wait with bated breath. I have a second one. It is to the Treasurer. It is question 1095, re regular reporting to the Treasurer. It expired on 3 June. I was wondering whether the Treasurer had an explanation as to why that question has not been answered within the time frame.
MR STANHOPE: Similarly, Mr Smyth, I believe I signed that response yesterday, but I would have to crosscheck the number. I do not have an explanation, other than pressure of work-it was somewhere within the system-perhaps to do with the production of the budget. But I apologise for any delay or inconvenience that may have been caused and will pursue the matter. I believe I signed it yesterday.
Auditor-General's Report No 3 of 2006
Mr Speaker presented the following paper:
Auditor-General Act-Auditor-General's report No 3/2006-Management of trust moneys and other non-public moneys, dated 6 June 2006.
MR CORBELL (Molonglo-Attorney-General, Minister for Police and Emergency Services and Minister for Planning) (3.28): I ask for leave to move a motion to authorise publication of Auditor-General's report No 3 of 2006.
MR CORBELL: I move:
That the Assembly authorises the publication of the Auditor-General's report No 3/2006.
Question resolved in the affirmative.
Human Rights Act
Statement by minister
MR CORBELL (Molonglo-Attorney-General, Minister for Police and Emergency Services and Minister for Planning): I seek leave to make a short statement.
MR CORBELL: I thank members. The Human Rights Act has nearly reached its second anniversary. Over the past two years, it has had a significant impact on the development of law in the territory and in the progress towards the passage of bills of rights in other jurisdictions.
