Administration and Procedure—Standing Committee

Report 10

MADAM SPEAKER: I present the following report:

Administration and Procedure—Standing Committee—Report 10—Inquiry into provisions of the Legislative Assembly (Office of the Legislative Assembly) Act 2012, dated 3 August 2016, together with a copy of the extracts of the relevant minutes of proceedings.

Motion (by Mr Rattenbury) agreed to:

That the report be noted.

Public Accounts—Standing Committee

Report 30

MS LAWDER (Brindabella) (10.41): I present the following report:

Public Accounts—Standing Committee—Report 30—Inquiry into the Loose-fill Asbestos Insulation Eradication Scheme—Quarterly progress reporting, dated 26 July 2016, together with a copy of the extracts of the relevant minutes of proceedings.

I move:

That the report be noted.

I am pleased to speak to report No 30 of the Standing Committee on Public Accounts inquiry into the loose-fill asbestos insulation eradication scheme quarterly progress reporting.

As members will be aware, in November and December of 2014 the public accounts committee inquired into and reported on the supplementary appropriation bill that would underpin the funding of the government's loose-fill, or Mr Fluffy, asbestos insulation eradication scheme, which I will refer to as the scheme. It would appear that at the moment I am the only original member left from the PAC that participated in that inquiry, but members will be aware that the funding source for the scheme is a $1 billion concessional loan from the commonwealth government.

In the inquiry the committee recommended, amongst other things, that, to ensure adequate coordination and monitoring of the scheme, the government table quarterly progress reports on its implementation. The government agreed with that recommendation, stating:

The Government has already agreed to do so. The Chief Minister's Ministerial Statement on 30 October 2014 was the first such report.
