MR BARR (Molonglo—Deputy Chief Minister, Treasurer, Minister for Economic Development and Minister for Tourism, Sport and Recreation): For the information of members, I present the following paper:
Territory Records Act—Review of the operation of the Act—Report No 3 to the ACT Legislative Assembly on the effectiveness of amendments made to the Territory Records Act 2002 and standards either revised or issued under the Act, in response to the Review of the Operation of the Territory Records Act 2002.

The report made three recommendations. These recommendations requested that I report to the Assembly on three occasions over a two-year period on the status of records management in ACT government agencies. The government tabled in the Assembly on 9 December 2010 and 30 June 2011 reports in relation to recommendations 1 and 2.
Today I am tabling the report in response to the third recommendation of the committee, which is reporting on the effectiveness of amendments made to the Territory Records Act 2002 and standards either revised or issued under the act. The government accepted the recommendations of this review and has quickly and effectively implemented the intent of the great bulk of the recommendations. The primary recommendations contained in the review were incorporated into the amendments to the Territory Records Act 2002 passed by the Assembly in 2010.
I am pleased that this report concludes:
Members of the Legislative Assembly and the ACT community can continue to be confident that the Territory's records management regime is robust and
