Estimates 2022-2023—Select Committee
MR MILLIGAN (Yerrabi) (10.01): I present:
Estimates 2022-2023—Select Committee—Report—Inquiry into the Appropriation Bill 2022-2023 and Appropriation (Office of the Legislative Assembly) Bill 2022-2023, dated 28 September 2022, together with a copy of the extracts of the relevant minutes of proceedings and a schedule of unanswered questions, dated 11 October 2022.
This report was circulated to members pursuant to standing order 254C. I move:
That the report be noted.
This is the first and final report of the Select Committee on Estimates 2022-2023. The committee commenced on 1 July 2022 and the Assembly referred the Appropriation Bill to the committee on 4 August 2022. The committee received 10 submissions and supplementary submissions and held 11 public hearings.
Witnesses answered 358 questions for the hearings. Pursuant to standing order 253A, I table the schedule, indicating that only one question on notice was not answered. The committee’s report had 143 recommendations. The committee looks forwards to its recommendations and findings informing the budget debate. On behalf of the committee, I would like to recognise ministers and ACT government officials for their attendance to the committee over the two weeks of hearings.
We also thank the community groups who took time to write submissions and appear at the community and industry group day. I also want to thank my colleagues on the committee, Dr Paterson and Mr Braddock, and also Committee Support, for their hard work during the enquiry. I commend the report to the Assembly.
Question resolved in the affirmative.
