MR STANHOPE: Mr Speaker, for the information of members, I have tabled revised administrative arrangements that were notified on 2 March and gazetted on 3 March. The principal change was to replace the title of Minister for Economic Development with separate new titles of Minister for Economic Development and Business, Minister for Tourism, Minister for Sport and Recreation, and Minister for Racing and Gaming. This was done in response to feedback from stakeholders.

Other changes made include the transfer of responsibility for the Gas Pipelines Act from the Treasurer to the Chief Minister and the transfer of section 261 of the Land (Planning and Environment) Act from the Minister for Planning to the Minister for the Environment. Seventeen repealed acts have also been deleted.

Annual Reports (Government Agencies) Act, pursuant to section 13—Annual Reports—2003-2004—Chief Minister’s Department—Corrigendum.

I seek leave to make a statement in relation to the paper.

Leave granted

MR STANHOPE: Mr Speaker, I raised this matter in the annual report hearings and provided, I believe, a copy of this corrigendum to members of that committee at that time. But, for the information of all other members, I have presented a corrigendum to the Chief Minister’s Department’s annual report for 2003-04, pages 126 to 131 of volume 1 of the report, to provide information on the department’s use of contractors and consultants. Information concerning consultants who were associated with the shaping our territory implementation group was inadvertently omitted from the final published report. As I have just said, details of the omission were forwarded to the Chair of the Standing Committee on Public Accounts prior to the recent annual reports hearings.


Mr Stanhope presented the following paper:
