Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 1999 Week 7 Hansard (1 July) . . Page.. 1998 ..



work, and the committee is disappointed the government did not provide it with a substantive response on these matters

the committee is also concerned that some mandatory maintenance is not being carried out properly because of specific management skills under the schools based management program

the committee urges the government to ensure that appropriate measures are undertaken to rectify these deficiencies

the committee has specifically recommended that the government develop and present to the Assembly a policy paper on a strategy for ageing and under utilised schools including reference to alternative uses of school facilities and budgetary effects

I commend the report to the Assembly.

MR QUINLAN: I would make particular reference to paragraph 4.4 of the report, which is not specifically mentioned in the recommendations. It suggests that the Government involve themselves in some form of inspection of schools from time to time, even though we have school-based management. I commend the report to the Assembly.

Debate (on motion by Mr Humphries ) adjourned.


Report on Review of Auditor-General's Report No. 7 of 1998

MR QUINLAN (12.53): Mr Speaker, I present Public Accounts Committee Report No. 20 of the Standing Committee for the Chief Minister's Portfolio, entitled "Review of Auditor-General's Report No. 7, 1998 - Magistrates Court Bail Processes", together with a copy of the extracts of the minutes of proceedings, and I move:

That the report be noted.

Again, Mr Speaker, I seek leave to have my short tabling speech incorporated in Hansard.

Leave granted.

The document read as follows:

this audit found that bail forfeiture and the imposition of penalties frequently does not occur in accordance with legislation and or court directions and that processes for issuing warrants for apprehension of defendants who fail to appear are inefficient
