Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2006 Week 11 Hansard (16 November) . . Page.. 3579..


MR GENTLEMAN (Brindabella) (10.36): Debate on this report was adjourned to allow members to study the report in full. Events have now moved on. We have had the government response, which I am pleased to see addressed all of the recommendations and, in fact, agreed to all but one of the recommendations, which the government said falls outside that mechanism. I now would simply like to recommend that the report be noted.

Question resolved in the affirmative.

Planning and Environment-Standing Committee

Report 17-government response

Debate resumed from 6 June 2006, on motion by Mr Gentleman:

That the report be noted.

DR FOSKEY (Molonglo) (10.37): Reports 20 and 17 of the planning and environment committee have been on the notice paper for some time. I moved a disallowance motion in relation to the government's decision on Kingston.

I have studied report 17 of the planning and environment committee. I believe it is a good report. I do not believe there is any reason for me to add anything in relation to the wildlife corridors in DV 231. It can now be removed from the notice paper.

MR GENTLEMAN (Brindabella) (10.38): I thank Dr Foskey for her comments. The committee studied this report long and hard. Members will see quite a few committee recommendations that I think contain a more environmental sway than is normal from the planning and environment committee. I look forward to the government response in order to finalise the report

Question resolved in the affirmative.

Education, Training and Young People-Standing Committee

Statement by chair

MS PORTER (Ginninderra) (10.39): Pursuant to Standing Order 246A, I wish to make a statement on behalf of the Standing Committee on Education, Training and Young People. On 15 August 2006 the Select Committee on Estimates tabled its report on the Appropriation Bill 2006-2007 and recommended that the Standing Committee on Education, Training and Young People should review the adequacy of strategies and resources provided to deal with bullying in all school systems, both public and private.

When noting this recommendation in its response to the estimates committee report, the government observed that all ACT government and non-government schools are required to comply with the national safe schools framework. In the course of conducting our inquiry into the restorative principles in youth settings, the standing committee has also noted the significance of the national framework to the implementation of restorative practices in ACT schools.
