MR STANHOPE (continuing):
submission of high quality digital data and ongoing relationships with other jurisdictions.
A Training and Tertiary Education Legislation Amendment Bill will also repeal the Vocational Education and Training Act and amend the Tertiary Accreditation and Registration Act. This is in line with the government's announcement on the establishment of the new Skills Commission and will implement a 2006-07 budget recommendation.
I have outlined just a few of the initiatives proposed in the autumn 2007 legislation program. The program maintains the government's work in ensuring good governance and protecting the future interests of Canberrans. I seek the cooperation of all members in the timely consideration of these bills. I commend the program to the Assembly.
Mr Stanhope presented the following paper:
Financial Management Act, pursuant to section 15-Instrument directing a transfer of funds between output classes within the Shared Services Centre, including a statement of reasons-revised version.
