Community Safety and Crime Prevention Grants Program

MR HUMPHRIES: Mr Speaker, I took a question at question time from Mr Quinlan about the community safety grants program. I want to give some information about that. There were recommendations to me a few months ago from the Community Safety Committee about the granting of a sum of money for a variety of community safety grants. It was my view, on considering the purpose and effect of those grants, that, in all, there was not a satisfactory level of benefit to the community from proceeding with the particular grants which were recommended to me and, accordingly, I asked for further work to be done on the targeting of particular issues and the focusing in on benefits to the ACT community from this particular grants program. Mr Speaker, I expect, in the next couple of weeks, a submission which will give me more information about the way in which we can deliver those particular grants in the way that I have described, and I will be happy to advise Mr Quinlan and others when I have been able to consider those particular grants.
