Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2021 Week 03 Hansard (Wednesday, 31 March 2021) . . Page.. 674 ..


non-government organisations, clinical leaders and consumer and carer representatives who are closely engaged in the process and outcomes.

In doing so, I acknowledge the very important role Kylie Jonasson has played in driving this work as the Director-General of the ACT Health Directorate over the last 12 months. I know that her positive, collaborative approach has been very much embraced, not only by directorate staff but across agencies, stakeholders and the wider community. I have certainly appreciated Kylie’s warmth, humour, and deep engagement with the health portfolio, as well as the leadership she has displayed in responding to a range of unique challenges.

We all recognise that cultural change will benefit not only the entire workforce of the three services, but also patients, their families and carers and our non-government partners. Our goal continues to be creating an environment where our workforce feels supported, valued, and empowered to deliver exceptional health care and enhance patient and consumer outcomes and experiences.

I present the following papers:

Culture Review Implementation—Culture Connect newsletter.

Workplace Culture within ACT Public Health Services—Biannual update on the Independent Review—Ministerial statement, 31 March 2021.

I move:

That the Assembly take note of the ministerial statement.

Question resolved in the affirmative.

Revenue Legislation Amendment Bill 2021

Mr Barr, Pursuant to notice, presented the bill, its explanatory statement, and a Human Rights Act compatibility statement.

Title read by Clerk.

MR BARR (Kurrajong—Chief Minister, Treasurer, Minister for Climate Action, Minister for Economic Development and Minister for Tourism) (10.43): I move:

That this bill be agreed to in principle.

With this bill, the ACT government is acting on its commitment in the Parliamentary and Governing Agreement for the Tenth Assembly to expand further the existing affordable community housing land tax exemption by removing the time limit for this exemption. The cap on the number of properties has already been increased from 125 to 250 under the Land Tax (Affordable Community Housing) Determination 2021 to support the increased supply of affordable housing, as outlined in the ACT housing strategy.
