Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2015 Week 3 Hansard (19 March) . .
That the report be noted.
I would like to thank members of the committee for their assistance in this report. It is an important issue. There are five recommendations that go to, in the main, a lot of process, particularly that ACT government directorates and agencies should ensure complete compliance with the reporting requirements as called for under the Auditor-General's report directions. There is a call that, when the Treasurer receives the industry panel, by the last sitting day in May he report to the Assembly on the progress of the panel's consideration and that that information should come to the Assembly hopefully before May.
The committee also recommends that the government ensure that the reporting time for the review of the ACT water and sewerage pricing framework permits consideration of the outcomes of the evaluation of the current review process and suitability post reporting by the industry panel.
I also take the opportunity to thank the secretary of the committee, Dr Cullen, for her assistance in putting together this report.
Question resolved in the affirmative.
MR SMYTH (Brindabella) (4.27): I present the following report:
Public Accounts—Standing Committee—Report 8—Review of Auditor-General's Report No 1 of 2014: Speed Cameras in the ACT, dated 26 February 2015, together with a copy of the extracts of the relevant minutes of proceedings.
Again, I thank members of the committee for their assistance in putting together this report. The issue of speed cameras in the ACT is very important to the people of the ACT. What I have noted under various ministers is that there has not been much of a case for the location and siting of the cameras. The committee's report has a few administrative recommendations amongst the eight recommendations which go to things like compliance with the requirements of the annual reports directions et cetera.
There is also a matter that is really becoming quite an issue with this government, and that is the release of reports. Recommendation 4 states:
The Committee recommends that the ACT Government table in the ACT Legislative Assembly, by the last sitting day in May 2015, the University of NSW's evaluation report on the existing ACT road safety camera program.
