Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2011 Week 7 Hansard (28 June) . . Page.. 2658..
Obviously, with the change in leadership I have taken carriage of that piece of work when it was almost complete.
I have had a briefing and I have been discussing the government's response with appropriate officials. Finalising the response has taken a bit longer simply because of the leadership change and the change in portfolio responsibilities. But my expectation is that it will be able to be finalised imminently and will be tabled out of session if that is appropriate.
MR BARR: We almost wish to photocopy the Chief Minister's statement and make exactly the same point. I understand that this matter is very soon to be responded on. I am sure I have written to the committee acknowledging the lateness of the government response. But, of course, I have just taken the responsibility for this area. I am seeking to finalise that response and provide it as soon as possible.
Mr Speaker presented the following paper:
Auditor-General Act—Auditor-General's Report No 3/2011—The North Weston Pond Project—Corrigendum.
MR SPEAKER: For the information of members I also present the following paper:
Bimberi Youth Justice Centre—Human Rights Audit into conditions—Privilege matters, pursuant to the resolution of the Assembly of 23 June 2011—Copy of letter from the Clerk of the Legislative Assembly to the Speaker, dated 28 June 2011.
That advice does note the possibility of passing a subsequent motion in order to deal with the matters that were raised in that debate last Thursday night.
Alexander Maconochie Centre
