(1) What is the ACT Government’s specific timeframe for successfully appointing an Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Children and Young People Commissioner, given that in the 2020 Portfolio Brief the Minister for Justice, Consumer Affairs and Road Safety states that, ‘we anticipate that the new Commissioner could be in place within two years’.

(2) What is the Government’s step-by-step plan for making sure that this appointment can be made within the timeframe referred to in part (1).

(3) Which of the steps referred to in part (2) have been completed so far.

(4) When did work on making this appointment begin given that this recommendation was made by the Our Booris, Our Way Steering Committee in December 2018.

Ms Cheyne: The answer to the member’s question is as follows:

1. The ACT Government does not have a specific timeframe.

The Parliamentary and Governing Agreement for the 10th Assembly reflects ACT Labor’s commitment to implementing all the recommendations of the Our Booris Our Way review - including the recommendation to establish an Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Children’s Commissioner.

As policy and legislation is developed to deliver on this commitment, genuine and effective engagement community will be essential and project timeframes will need to accommodate that engagement.
