Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2021 Week 12 Hansard (Tuesday, 23 November 2021) . . Page.. 3456 ..


I move:

That the report be noted.

This is the third report of the Standing Committee on Justice and Community Safety, and, following referral by the Assembly on 6 October, it is in relation to the relevant budget papers. The committee held six public hearings during the estimates fortnight. Twenty-four questions were taken on notice and 52 questions were placed on notice. The answers are available on the committee’s webpage.

The committee made 46 recommendations on a range of matters including justice reinvestment, supported decision-making, gambling policy, the Alexander Maconochie Centre, ACT Policing, road safety, emergency services, community legal centre funding, elder abuse, and the Public Trustee and Guardian.

On behalf of the committee, I thank ACT government ministers, statutory office holders and directorate and agency officials for their contribution to this inquiry. I would also like to thank my fellow members of the committee, Dr Paterson and Ms Clay. As we are all aware, things were very compressed for time and it took quite a bit of work to get the report together in the time frames required. Again, I thank our committee secretary, Brianna, for the outstanding job that she did in organising the whole process, making sure it ran seamlessly and assisting in the drafting of the report. I commend the report to the Assembly.

Question resolved in the affirmative.
