issues at hand were resolved and that systems were put in place to ensure that the issues that arose in this instance would not occur again.

Undoubtedly, there have been some challenges between the two agencies in relation to the matter that have been extensively canvassed. Shared Services are aware of their responsibilities in relation to the matter and are working diligently with Mr Corbell's directorate to resolve the outstanding issues and to ensure that systems are improved for the future.

MADAM SPEAKER: Supplementary question, Mr Smyth.

MR SMYTH: Treasurer, when exactly was the issue brought to you attention? Do you accept Mr Corbell's criticism that communication between Shared Services HR functions and his directorate were less than adequate?

MR BARR: The exact date I do not retain with me at the moment, but I will check my diary records and the briefings from CWD and provide that information to the member.

MADAM SPEAKER: A supplementary question, Mrs Jones.

MRS JONES: Minister, what actions have you taken to ensure that the problem identified will not occur again?

MR BARR: I have answered that question.

MADAM SPEAKER: A supplementary question, Mrs Jones.

MRS JONES: Minister, who is ultimately responsible for personnel record keeping—Shared Services or individual directorates?

MR BARR: Systems that are in place require the engagement and active involvement of both the employing directorate and Shared Services.

ACTION bus service—network

MS BERRY: My question is to the Minister for Territory and Municipal Services. Minister, can you update the Assembly on the progress of network 14, the new ACTION network.

MR RATTENBURY: Consultation has been conducted on the proposed ACTION bus network for 2014. Public submissions closed at the end of October. The consultation included 10 community drop-in sessions as well as hard copy information available from libraries and Canberra Connect shopfronts. There is also electronic information available on the net as well. Bus users also will have seen in some locations large maps of the proposed new network placed in some of the more popular bus shelters.
