Public service—privacy

(Question No 2031)

Dr Foskey asked the Chief Minister, upon notice, on 8 April 2008:

(1) Does the ACT Government permit officers, who are subject to a grievance, being able to terminate the employment of an officer who lodged that grievance;

(2) Does the ACT Government permit managers in non-personnel related areas to investigate the work history and background of their superiors.

Mr Stanhope: The answer to the member's question is as follows:

These questions relate to matters that are currently the subject of legal proceedings. These proceedings were addressed in response to Question on Notice No. 1978 of 6 March 2008. Continuing Resolution 10 of the Standing Orders states that cases in which proceedings are active in the courts shall not be referred to in any motion, debate or question.

It would be inconsistent with the Standing Orders to allow the Assembly to be used as a forum to conduct a forensic investigation in pursuit of a matter that is the subject of legal proceedings. Accordingly, an answer cannot be provided.
