The current terms and conditions of employment of existing staff will be protected. It is envisaged that, following consultation with relevant unions, staff of the new authority would in due course be brought under the new ACT public sector management legislation. All rights, property or assets, debts and liabilities of the Territory owned corporation will transfer to the new authority. The new arrangements for the ACTTAB are directed at ensuring that government priorities are met in its operations while maintaining the current standard of service to its clients and the racing codes. Madam Speaker, I present the explanatory memorandum for the Bill.
Debate (on motion by Mr De Domenico) adjourned.
PLANNING, DEVELOPMENT AND INFRASTRUCTURE -
1993-94 New Capital Works Program
MS FOLLETT (Chief Minister and Treasurer) (10.51): Madam Speaker, I ask for leave of the Assembly to move a motion concerning the referral of a matter to the Standing Committee on Planning, Development and Infrastructure.
MS FOLLETT: I move:
(1) the proposed 1993-94 New Capital Works Program be referred to the Standing Committee on Planning, Development and Infrastructure for inquiry and report by 24 August 1993;
(2) if the Assembly is not sitting when the Committee has completed its inquiry the Committee may send its report to the Speaker or, in the absence of the Speaker, to the Deputy Speaker, who is authorised to give directions for its printing and circulation; and
(3) the foregoing provisions of this resolution have effect notwithstanding anything contained in the standing orders.
The Government is currently in the process of developing the new capital works program for 1993-94. It is necessary for the capital works program to be referred to the Planning, Development and Infrastructure Standing Committee and for that committee to report to this Assembly by 24 August 1993 so that the program can be included in the budget session. I commend the motion to the Assembly.
MR KAINE (10.52): Madam Speaker, I suggest that this is a rather unusual motion. It refers to the proposed 1993-94 new capital works program, which in fact does not exist.
Ms Follett: No, that is right.
