State of the environment report 2007-08
MR CORBELL (Molonglo—Attorney-General, Minister for the Environment, Climate Change and Water, Minister for Energy and Minister for Police and Emergency Services), by leave: Pursuant to section 19(3)(b) of the Commissioner for the Environment Act 1993, in relation to the government response to the ACT state of the environment report 2007-08, I wish to advise members that this report was received by the Minister for the Environment, Water and Climate Change on 7 July 2008 and tabled in the Assembly on 7 August this year.
The report contains 18 major and 60 minor recommendations which will require comprehensive consideration by the government. Due to the ACT election and the consequential change in portfolio responsibility and administrative arrangements, the government will not be able to table its response within six months of the receipt of this report. The government will now provide its response in the first sitting period next year.
