Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 1993 Week 08 Hansard (Tuesday, 17 August 1993) . . Page.. 2272 ..

It was announced in the context of an election campaign. Members will be delighted to see that here is the election promise delivered; there is actually a net reduction on calls on the ACT budget.

Mr De Domenico: You did not deliver on the abortion clinic.

MR CONNOLLY: Madam Speaker, I am looking forward to Mr De Domenico entering this debate and further congratulating me because he will see the recurrent expenditure on ACTION. While we were budgeting to spend some $51.9m on ACTION's recurrent expenditure this year, which is a reduction from $54.7m when Mr Kaine was Treasurer - it dropped to $52.8m in the first year that I was responsible for it - in fact we spent $51.56m. Apart from our expectation of reducing it from $54.7m when Mr Kaine was Treasurer to $51.9m this year - that is what I was budgeting for - through rigorous management and rigorous administration by this Labor Government we reduced it by a further $300,000. No doubt, Mr Kaine, you are saying, "Shock, horror! The Government should have thrown more money at the problem and spent more ratepayers' dollars".

Debate (on motion by Mr De Domenico) adjourned.

Paper and Ministerial Statement

MS FOLLETT (Chief Minister and Treasurer): Madam Speaker, for the information of members, I present the ACT Government Service quarterly staffing analysis for June 1993. I ask for leave to make a short statement - a very short statement, I might add.

Leave granted.

MS FOLLETT: Madam Speaker, in its response to the report by the Estimates Committee on the Appropriation Bill 1992-93 the Government undertook to table ACT Government Service quarterly staffing analyses as they became available. The figures relating to the latest analysis for June 1993, which was pay period No. 26, are now available.
