Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 1999 Week 11 Hansard (21 October) . . Page.. 3462..


MR BERRY: Thank you. Mr Moore said that he knew that I did not care about the job prospects of certain workers, or words to that effect. There would be nothing that I have ever done in this place that would give Mr Moore or anybody else that impression. In fact, Mr Speaker, almost everything I do in relation to jobs and the job prospects of workers relates to my concern about them.

MR SPEAKER: You have made your point, Mr Berry.

ANNUAL REPORT

Paper and Ministerial Statement

MS CARNELL (Chief Minister): Mr Speaker, for the information of members, I present the financial statements for 1998-99 for the Superannuation and Insurance Provision Unit, Territorial Account, due to the omission of three pages of the statements in Volume 2 of the Chief Minister's Department Annual Report 1998-99. I ask for leave to make a brief statement.

Leave granted.

MS CARNELL: Mr Speaker, I wish to table the financial statements for the year ended 30 June 1999, and I apologise to members for them not being part of the annual report. The Statement of Performance and Statement of Appropriation (three pages) were missing from the statements included in Volume 2 of the Chief Minister's Department Annual Report 1998-99 tabled on 14 October this year. This omission occurred in the process of consolidating Volume 2. A revised copy of Volume 2 has been distributed to members. Nonetheless I regret any inconvenience that may have been caused.
