Administrative Arrangements—Administrative Arrangements 2013 (No 1)—Notifiable Instrument NI2013-244 (Special Gazette No. S1, Friday 28 June, 2013).
I seek leave to make a short statement in relation to the paper.
MS GALLAGHER: I am pleased to table the Administrative Arrangements 2013 (No 1). To oversee the construction and management of light rail in the ACT, the government has agreed to the establishment of the Capital Metro Agency, effective from 1 July 2013.
The administrative arrangements that I table today formalise the establishment of the Capital Metro Agency as a separate administrative unit within the portfolio responsibility of the Minister for the Environment and Sustainable Development. The arrangements also make some corrections to the schedule of enactments, as advised by the parliamentary counsel. I commend the Administrative Arrangements 2013 (No 1) to the Assembly.
