Justice and Community Safety—Standing Committee

Statement by chair

MRS DUNNE (Ginninderra): Pursuant to standing order 246A, I wish to make a statement on behalf of the Standing Committee on Justice and Community Safety. The Standing Committee on Justice and Community Safety recently resolved to inquire into and report on the circumstances surrounding the delay in the commencement of the operations of the Alexander Maconochie Centre—AMC—the cost of delays to the ACT government, as well as the impact of delays, if any, on the delivery of corrective services.

The committee, in its deliberations, will consider the circumstances surrounding the official opening of the AMC on 11 September 2008, the factors contributing to delays in the AMC, including the variations to the original project design as awarded to the contractor and the commissioning process, the total cost of the delays to the ACT government, the impacts of the delays on sentenced prisoners currently serving sentences in New South Wales prisons and whether delays in the AMC project have caused or exacerbated the human rights breaches at existing ACT Corrective Services facilities and any other relevant matter.

Public Accounts—Standing Committee

Statement by chair

MS LE COUTEUR (Molonglo) (10.44): Pursuant to standing order 246A I wish to make a statement on behalf of the Standing Committee on Public Accounts.

On 4 December 2007, Auditor-General's report No 7 of 2007 entitled The aged care assessment program and the home and community care program was referred to the Standing Committee on Public Accounts for inquiry. The committee considered inquiring into this report but resolved that it did not warrant further inquiry.

On 6 December 2007, Auditor-General's report No 8 of 2007 entitled 2006-07 financial audits was referred to the Standing Committee on Public Accounts for inquiry. The committee considered inquiring into this report and resolved that it did not warrant further inquiry.

On 26 June 2008, Auditor-General's report No 2 of 2008 entitled Management of Calvary Hospital agreements was referred to the Standing Committee on Public Accounts for inquiry. The committee considered inquiring into this report but resolved that it did not warrant further inquiry.

On 16 September 2008, Auditor-General's report No 5 of 2008 entitled Administration of the Freedom of Information Act 1989 was referred to the Standing Committee on Public Accounts for inquiry. The committee has resolved to make no further inquiries into the report. As the report examines how audited agencies administered and complied with the Freedom of Information Act 1989, and given the widespread community interest in freedom of information matters, the committee has written to the Standing Committee on Justice and Community Safety to bring the report to its attention.
