Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2003 Week 6 Hansard (17 June) . . Page.. 1932 ..



A further issue which elicited disparate views amongst stakeholders was the issue concerning whether the act should continue to integrate care and protection, criminal justice and children's services provisions in the legislation or whether they should be separated. Following the tabling of the review before the Assembly, it's proposed that community consultation will assist government in reaching a final position on these varied issues.

The inclusion of the community and the ongoing progress of legislative reform are consistent with the principles of the act and ensure the ongoing commitment of the community in the care and protection of children and young people.

Community consultation is proposed to commence in late June 2003. Upon completion of the public consultation process, a further submission is expected to be made.

I commend the report to the Assembly.

I move:

That the Assembly takes note of the report.

Debate (on motion by Mrs Burke ) adjourned to the next sitting.
