Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2017 Week 01 Hansard (Thursday, 15 December 2016) . . Page.. 279 ..


Mr Doszpot also asked about the number and locations of the signs. There were 12 back-to-back bladed signs installed and two single-bladed signs installed at various locations around Lake Tuggeranong. Thirty-five back-to-back signs have also been installed around Lake Ginninderra and Emu Inlet.

Mr Doszpot also asked what powers a ranger has to control behaviour on shared paths and how often rangers patrol shared paths. While the Transport Canberra and City Services Directorate works with Pedal Power, the RSPCA ACT and other recreational groups to encourage good behaviour in areas of open space, including cycle paths, depending on the type of behaviour, the matter should be referred to ACT Policing. However, officers from Transport Canberra and City Services regularly patrol paths to inspect for maintenance issues.

Paper and statement by minister

MS STEPHEN-SMITH (Kurrajong—Minister for Community Services and Social Inclusion, Minister for Disability, Children and Youth, Minister for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Affairs, Minister for Multicultural Affairs and Minister for Workplace Safety and Industrial Relations) (3.31): For the information of members, I present the following paper:

2010 2020 National Disability Strategy—Second Implementation Plan—Driving Action 2015-2018.

I ask leave to make a statement in relation to the paper.

Leave granted.

MS STEPHEN-SMITH: I am pleased to present to the Assembly the National Disability Strategy 2010-2020: Second Implementation Plan, Driving Action 2015-2018. Since the national disability strategy launched in 2011, we have seen fundamental changes and significant achievements across Australia towards a unified national approach to disability policy and service delivery. Members may be aware of the recent announcement by the federal Minister for Social Services, the Honourable Christian Porter MP, launching the national disability strategy second implementation plan.

The plan provides an overarching framework for policy action and areas of national cooperation and reaffirms the commitment of the commonwealth, states and territories to improving outcomes for people with disability. The second implementation plan contains four key areas that focus on the NDIS transition to full scheme, activities to promote the intent of the strategy, improving employment outcomes for all Australians with disability, and improving outcomes for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people with disability.
