and also looking at how we work with the commonwealth, industry and the community to better identify and communicate our infrastructure priorities.

MR SPEAKER: Ms Porter, a supplementary?

MS PORTER: What role does the government’s Strategic Board play in the development of the strategic plan?

MS GALLAGHER: The infrastructure plan does work across government and, indeed, across all of the directorates. There is a chief executives strategic planning committee, which was formed in 2001. The new Strategic Board will have a particular role in managing particularly the key priorities I will be identifying after question time today. The Strategic Board’s focus—and, I think, the direction from government—is very clear.

We expect our capital program to be delivered within the budget and within the time frames specified. Obviously there are individual projects where timing and costing issues will have to be readdressed during the delivery of those projects but I think the government has made it very clear to the Strategic Board that we expect them to be leading the delivery of our infrastructure program right across the government.

I ask that all further questions be placed on the notice paper.
