MR STANHOPE (continuing):

the information of members, I present the following papers:

Australian Capital Territory (Self-Government) Ministerial Appointments Notice 2006 (No 1)—Notifiable Instrument NI2006-142 (S2, dated Friday, 21 April 2006).

Administrative Arrangements 2006—Notifiable Instrument NI2006-140, dated 20 April 2006).

I ask for leave to make a statement in relation to the papers.

Leave granted.

MR STANHOPE: Mr Speaker, for the information of members, I have tabled revised administrative arrangements which commenced on 21 April 2006 and which implemented the ministerial reshuffle that I announced on 18 April.

As well as the appointment of Ms Katy Gallagher as Deputy Chief Minister and Mr Andrew Barr as a new minister, key changes include a number of new ministerial titles and some initial restructuring flowing from the functional and strategic review. Whilst the new arrangements have resulted in some departments reporting to more than one minister, functional reporting within agencies remains unchanged for the present time.

Amendments have also been made to update legislation. Three new acts have been added, namely, the Crimes (Sentencing Administration) Act, the Crimes (Sentencing) Act and the Casino Control Act. Nine repealed acts have been deleted, namely, the Administration (Interstate Agreements) Act, the Australian and New Zealand Banking Group Limited Act, the Bank Mergers Act, the Canberra Advance Bank Limited (Merger) Act, the State Bank of South Australia (Transfer of Undertakings) Act, the Community Advocate Act, the Nurses Act, the Tree Protection (Interim Scheme) Act, and the Defamation (Criminal Proceedings) Act.
