Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2002 Week 1 Hansard (11 December) . . Page.. 76 ..
MR STANHOPE (continuing):
Several changes have been made to the responsibilities of ACT government departments as a result of the new administrative arrangements. These changes bring a number of functions into the Chief Minister's Department, namely, Industrial Relations and Sport. An Office of Sustainability is also to be established within my department. Housing has moved to the Department of Urban Services, InTACT and Procurement Solutions are now with the Department of Treasury, and Canberra Connect and the Arts with the Department of Urban Services. The Department of Urban Services will continue to have responsibility for planning until an independent statutory body is in place.
Mr Speaker, these new arrangements reflect the approach we as a government have taken to efficient, effective and consultative government in the ACT. These arrangements also flag our commitment to raising the standards of territory government with responsible, open and accountable government. In conclusion, Mr Speaker, I would like to advise the Assembly that Mr Wood is, as has already been indicated, the Manager of Government Business and that Mr Hargreaves is the Government Whip.
