MR SPEAKER: For the information of members, I present reports of study trips undertaken by Mr Berry to Brisbane between 6 and 8 July 1999 and Mr Hargreaves to Sydney on 13 August 1999.
MR SPEAKER: Pursuant to subsection 8(4) of the Legislative Assembly (Broadcasting of Proceedings) Act 1997, I present authorisations to broadcast given to a number of television networks and radio stations in relation to proceedings on (a) the public hearing on the inquiry into the establishment of an ACT prison by the Standing Committee on Justice and Community Safety on 10 June 1999; and (b) the public hearing on the inquiry into service purchasing arrangements by the Standing Committee for the Chief Minister's Portfolio on 20 August 1999.
MS CARNELL (Chief Minister): Mr Speaker, I present for the information of members the Administrative Arrangements as contained in Gazettes Nos S476 and S50 on 6 August 1999 and 23 August 1999, respectively, and I seek leave to make a short statement.
MS CARNELL: Two sets of Administrative Arrangements Orders are being tabled today. The first came into effect on 7 August 1999. Further changes to the orders came into effect on 23 August 1999. The earlier arrangements reflect the changes to my Government's ministerial responsibilities announced on 6 August 1999. As you know, Mr Humphries has been appointed as Treasurer. The new Department of Treasury and Infrastructure is also established and is allocated responsibility for the matters and enactments administered by the former Office of Financial Management in the Chief Minister's Department.
The second set of arrangements implements the recommendations of the coroner's report on Quamby to locate all corrective services measures, including youth justice, in the one administrative area. This involves the transfer of Parts IV and IVA of the Children's Services Act 1989 to the Attorney-General's portfolio, to be administered by the Department of Justice and Community Safety.
