Ethics and Integrity Adviser—appointment

Statement by Speaker

MADAM SPEAKER: Members, I wish to make a statement concerning the role of Ethics and Integrity Adviser. The term of the previous Ethics and Integrity Adviser ended in January this year and the role was advertised in December last year. The Deputy Speaker and I undertook a selection process after receiving several expressions of interest. Following that selection process and consultation with the Chief Minister, the Leader of the Opposition and Mr Rattenbury, I wish to advise that Mr Stephen Skehill has been selected to be the Ethics and Integrity Adviser for the Eighth Assembly.

In addition to being the Assembly's inaugural adviser when he was appointed in 2008, Mr Skehill has extensive public sector and legal experience in the Australian public service as well as in private practice. In a long career he has held positions such as the Australian Government Solicitor and secretary of the commonwealth Attorney-General's Department. Members are encouraged to seek the advice of the Ethics and Integrity Adviser when they consider it would assist them in performing their duties as elected representatives of the territory. Mr Skehill can be contacted through the Office of the Clerk.
