Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2014 Week 5 Hansard (13 May) . . Page.. 1382..


I am concerned to hear from this question and this general line of questioning that there would seem to be some suggestion that the Sentence Administration Board would be acting in a manner that is not consistent with its obligations under the relevant legislation.

Matters in relation to accommodation are not a consideration. Are you suggesting they that they are? Are you suggesting that the Sentence Administration Board members are not abiding by their legislative responsibilities?

Mr Hanson interjecting—

MR CORBELL: Is that what you are suggesting?

Mr Hanson interjecting—

MR CORBELL: Is that what you are suggesting?

MADAM SPEAKER: Order! This is not a conversation. The attorney should address the chair and not attempt to put words in other people's mouths. Have you finished answering the question?

MR CORBELL: Yes, thank you, Madam Speaker.

Community services—human services blueprint

MS PORTER: My question is to the Minister for Community Services. Minister, could you please outline for the Assembly the work the ACT government has been doing to develop a human services blueprint?

MR BARR: I thank Ms Porter for the question. The human services blueprint is a major initiative of the government to support greater economic and social participation by all Canberrans. The blueprint will guide the ACT government's decisions about human service delivery over the coming years. It will change the way services work together to meet people's needs. Importantly, it will drive real changes in the way people experience community-based services, which will improve lives and improve opportunities. This work is a key component of the government's reform agenda to build a safe and inclusive community and a strong economy and to provide opportunity to all Canberrans.

The design of the blueprint has required a high level of commitment and leadership across the government and the community sector.

Mr Hanson interjecting—

MR BARR: It has, Madam Speaker. I am pleased that the opposition are so interested in my answer this afternoon and in the blueprint.
