Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2015 Week 03 Hansard (Tuesday, 17 March 2015) . . Page.. 738 ..
MR BARR: As the referring authority, I have presented to the Assembly the industry panel declaration and report—application made by Icon Water Ltd under section 24S of the Independent Competition and Regulatory Commission Act 1997 in relation to the first biennial recalibration—dated 18 February 2015.
This report has been undertaken by the industry panel who are reviewing the current water and sewerage price direction. As a result of this work Icon Water Ltd made an application to alter the current price direction to stop the first biennial recalibration. This application was made under section 24S of the Independent Competition and Regulatory Commission Act 1997—the ICRC Act.
The industry panel report incorporates two declarations. The first is to cease the first biennial recalibration process under the current price direction. The second is that if the industry panel does not release its final decision on water and sewerage prices by Friday, 5 June 2015, the current 2014-15 prices for water and sewerage will continue to apply in 2015-16.
The ICRC Act requires the referring authority to present the Assembly with the report of investigations undertaken by an industry panel. I commend this report to the Assembly.
