Administration and Procedure—Standing Committee
Statement by chair
MR RATTENBURY (Molonglo): Pursuant to standing order 246A I wish to make a statement on behalf of the Standing Committee on Administration and Procedure. The Select Committee on Estimates 2010-2011 recommended:
... that the Standing Committee on Administration and Procedure investigate and advise the Assembly on:
the effectiveness of the select committee model; and
the adequacy of procedural guidelines for estimates inquiries and whether amendments to standing orders or a more detailed referral motion are warranted in the future.
The committee has discussed the issues raised by the recommendation but has not reached a resolution. To assist the committee with this discussion, the secretariat prepared the following documents: a briefing paper outlining possible models for the conduct of estimates inquiries; draft detailed referral of estimates to select committee; and draft referral of estimates to standing committees of the Legislative Assembly.
I table the following documents for the information of all members and leave the matter for the Assembly to resolve:
Estimates 2010-2011—Select Committee—Report—Appropriation Bill 2010-2011—Recommendation 1—
Models for the conduct of estimates inquiries—Briefing paper, prepared by the Committee Office, dated November 2010.
