Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2010 Week 13 Hansard (Thursday, 18 November 2010) . . Page.. 5690 ..

MR CORBELL: Volume 1 of the annual report provides information on legal services to government and, in particular, a breakdown of expenditure by the ACT Government Solicitor from the legal expense vote (territorial account). The 2009-10 figures in table 7 on page 25 were incorrect in the published report.

Volume 1 of the annual report at appendix 1 also includes information on the department’s strategic indicators. Pages 167 and 168 include information on the timely completion of civil cases in the courts, percentage change and number of cases in the backlog of civil cases. Note 2 was incorrectly referenced to the Supreme Court table.

Page 171 includes information on the timely processing of criminal cases, percentage and number of criminal cases that are finalised from time of listing, reported by time interval. Both the Magistrates Court and the Supreme Court report against this strategic indicator. The Magistrates Court table was omitted in the published annual report. The corrigendum replaces the information provided in the published report and also provides information which was omitted.

Mr Barr presented the following paper:
