Statement by chair
MR WALL (Brindabella) (10.48): Pursuant to standing order 246A, I wish to make a statement on behalf of the Standing Committee on the Integrity Commission. On 9 August the Standing Committee on the Integrity Commission, along with the Standing Committee on Public Accounts, met with Mr Dennis Cowdroy, the ACT Integrity Commissioner. The meeting was held partly to address some questions raised by the Standing Committee on Public Accounts about the interaction between Assembly committees and the commission. Members will have seen the advice from the ethics and integrity adviser, as endorsed by the commissioner, circulated by the Speaker on Tuesday.
The Integrity Commissioner provided the committees with an update on progress in establishing the commission. Recruitment processes for a CEO are underway. The commissioner is confident that the commission will be operational by 1 December, as required by the act. The commissioner provided a chronology of the actions taken to establish the commission to date, as well as tasks still to be completed. I seek leave to table the chronology, for the information of members.
MR WALL: I present the following paper:
