Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2008 Week 3 Hansard (3 April) . . Page.. 961..


MR STANHOPE (continuing):

Environment, Water and Climate Change, Minister for the Arts): For the information of members, I present the following paper:

Financial Management Act, pursuant to section 18A—Instrument authorising expenditure from the Treasurer's Advance to the Chief Minister's Department, including a statement of reasons, dated 31 March 2008.

I ask leave to make a statement in relation to the paper.

Leave granted.

MR STANHOPE: As required by the Financial Management Act 1996, I table an instrument issued under section 18A of the act. The direction and a statement of reasons for the above instrument must be tabled in the Assembly within three sitting days after it is given.

This instrument provides funding of $77,490 to the Chief Minister's Department to meet rental payments to Dytin Pty Ltd for the period 11 February 2008 to 11 May 2008. This payment has resulted from a deed of variation of agreement being entered into on 11 February 2008 extending the sublease until 11 May 2008. The cost of the additional rent is consistent with the 11 August 2006 Narrabundah Long Stay Caravan Park land swap agreement entered into by the government and Dytin Pty Ltd. I commend the instrument to the Assembly.

Paper and statement by minister

MS GALLAGHER (Molonglo—Minister for Health, Minister for Children and Young People, Minister for Disability and Community Services, Minister for Women): For the information of members, I present the following paper:

Murray-Mackie Study—Recommendations—Government response and current progress as at 25 February 2008, dated April 2008.

I ask leave to make a statement in relation to the paper.

Leave granted.

MS GALLAGHER: I am pleased to table for the information of members the final report outlining the progress made to implement the recommendations of the independent study of interventions by the Office for Children, Youth and Family Support in matters concerning the death or near death of children in the Australian Capital Territory.

In 2006, the Office for Children, Youth and Family Support within the Department of Disability, Housing and Community Services commissioned a study into the interventions of children who had died or nearly died and who at some time in their lives were known to care and protection services. Ms Gwenn Murray and Mr Craig Mackie undertook the study.
