Ministerial Statement

Debate resumed.

MS FOLLETT: As I was saying, Mr Speaker, Mrs Carnell has constantly criticised the name of the ACT Government administration - ACT Government Service. In fact, in her speech she referred to that name and said:

This misdirection of priorities was reflected in the name chosen for the ACT’s separate public service, namely, the “Government Service” ...

But she has not changed it, Mr Speaker. I find that an extraordinarily silly approach, but it is typical of the lightweight nature of this whole document. Again, Mrs Carnell makes the empty rhetorical claim that her party was elected on a commitment to a more open, consultative, city style of government. I think that, if you asked all members other than those in the Liberal Party whether they had seen any evidence whatsoever of that change, we would be unanimous in saying no.
