Statement by Chair
MR HINDER (Ginninderra): Pursuant to standing order 246A I wish to make a statement on behalf of the Standing Committee on Education, Training and Youth Affairs relating to statutory appointments in accordance with continuing resolution 5A.
Continuing resolution 5A was agreed to by the Legislative Assembly on 23 August 2012. The requirements of the resolution set out a transparency mechanism to promote accountability in 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 response was provided. In this period the committee has advised ministers that it had no comment to make on the appointments proposed.
