Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2006 Week 3 Hansard (28 March) . . Page.. 683..
MR STANHOPE (continuing):
I think it is also appropriate at this time to make the point-and I will not dwell on it-that in a week or two it will be the second anniversary of the announcement by the commonwealth government of the abolition of ATSIC. I think it is appropriate that we pause and reflect on the implications of the new approach to indigenous affairs in Australia. In a couple of weeks, it will be two years since ATSIC was abolished and we have now moved into the new era of mutual obligation and shared responsibility. After two years, as we look for the progress that has been achieved as a result of this term, we will in future continue to reflect on that particular policy decision.
MR SPEAKER: Order! The member's time has expired.
Mr Stanhope: Mr Speaker, I ask that further questions be placed on the notice paper.
