Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2014 Week 10 Hansard (25 September) . .
Albert Hall is widely recognised for its heritage significance, and the committee has decided to conduct an inquiry into the draft plan of management. The plan sets out objectives, uses, management, actions and monitoring and review for the management of Albert Hall for the next decade. The development of the plan follows the release of an earlier draft plan of management in May 2012.
The committee has invited written submissions to be in by Monday, 13 October 2014 and will consider further steps in the inquiry after that point.
Public Accounts—Standing Committee
Statement by chair
MR SMYTH (Brindabella): Pursuant to standing order 246A I wish to make a statement on behalf of the Standing Committee on Public Accounts relating to statutory appointments in accordance with continuing resolution 5A.
Continuing resolution 5A was agreed by the Legislative Assembly on 23 August 2012. The requirements of the resolution set out a transparency mechanism to promote accountability in the consideration of statutory appointments. The resolution requires relevant standing committees which consider statutory appointments to report on a six-monthly basis and present a schedule listing appointments considered during the applicable period.
The schedule is required to include the statutory appointments considered and, for each appointment, the date the request from the responsible minister for consultation was received and the date the committee's feedback was provided.
For the applicable reporting period—1 January 2014 to 30 June 2014—the committee considered 14 statutory appointments.
I therefore table a schedule of statutory appointments for the period 1 January 2014 to 30 June 2014 as considered by the Eighth Assembly's public accounts committee in accordance with continuing resolution 5A. I present the following paper:
Public Accounts—Standing Committee—Schedule of Statutory Appointments—8th Assembly—Period 1 January to 30 June 2014.
MR SMYTH (Brindabella): Pursuant to standing order 246A I wish to make a statement on behalf of the Standing Committee on Public Accounts relating to inquiries about certain Auditor-General's reports currently before the committee.
On 8 June 2012 Auditor-General's report No 2 of 2012 was referred to the Standing Committee on Public Accounts for inquiry.
