Statement by minister
MR HUMPHRIES (Chief Minister, Minister for Community Affairs and Treasurer): Mr Speaker, I ask for leave to make a statement in relation to the paper on administrative arrangements.
MR HUMPHRIES: Mr Speaker, I have been very pleased to table the administrative arrangement orders of this government, together with the new ministerial arrangements. The changes to the administrative arrangements follow the resignation of Mrs Carnell last year. The changes very briefly are as follows: Mr Moore, previously the Minister for Health, Housing and Community Care, has taken on responsibility for family services and corrective services and is now Minister for Health, Housing and Community Services. Urban Services Minister and Deputy Chief Minister, Mr Brendan Smyth, becomes Minister for Police and Emergency Services in addition to taking on business, tourism and the arts, formerly the responsibility of Mrs Carnell. The Minister for Education, Bill Stefaniak, will become Attorney-General, encompassing fair trading and the Registrar-General's Office.
The changes spread responsibility across the four ministers and allow me to place more focus on community affairs and on whole of government strategy. These new ministries have not involved structural change to any ACT government departments. These new arrangements continue the streamlined approach we as a government have taken to efficient and effective government in the ACT.
