Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2003 Week 12 Hansard (20 November) . . Page.. 4388..


MR CORBELL (continuing):

Industry has offered to provide publicity and other assistance as appropriate for the implementation of the new scheme. I welcome these offers and look forward to working cooperatively with industry to implement a new system that offers better outcomes for industry and the community.

In conclusion, Mr Speaker: we need a regulatory system that ensures the buildings we live, work and play in are constructed to the highest standards by individuals or companies that have the level of skills necessary to undertake the work. Mr Speaker, I believe that the legislation I am presenting today will meet these needs for the ACT.
