the Chief Minister in establishing Ministerial portfolios following the election of the second Stanhope Government. The Chief Minister’s media release of 4 November 2005 reflects the announcement of portfolio responsibilities.
(2) The relocation of the Office for Children, Youth and Family Support to the Department of Disability, Housing and Community Services was a machinery of government process and did not impact on service delivery. The transfer only served to enhance the delivery of services to the community. The Department now has responsibility for funding more than 70% of the non-government human services supported by the ACT Government. This significant role will extend our partnerships with the community sector, which are a vital part of the delivery of human services in the Territory.
Further, the Government has committed to consolidating worksites across the Office for Children, Youth and Family Support (in line with the Vardon report recommendations). New accommodation for the Office has been secured at 11 Moore Street, City and the relocation of the Office will be broadly promoted in the community preceding the move.

Mr Hargreaves: The answer to the member’s question is as follows:

The amount of signage provided is generally minimal and represents a very small percentage of the overall project cost. The order of cost of the signage over the three years would be no more than $20,000.
