I move:

That the Assembly takes note of the papers.

I am pleased to present the government’s responses to all six Assembly standing committee reports on the 2009-10 annual and financial reports of ACT government agencies. In keeping with past practice, I am tabling the responses to all six standing committee reports together. This is because the standing committee reports generally cover more than one minister and more than one portfolio and, in some cases, issues raised in the reports apply across directorates.

Annual and financial reports are prepared by directorates in accordance with the Annual Reports Act 2004, the Financial Management Act 1996 and the Chief Minister’s Department annual report directions. In this regard, the government seeks to ensure that annual and financial reports are continually updated to reflect best practice and full accountability.

The standing committees made 90 recommendations. The government has agreed in full, in principle or in part to 48 recommendations. We have noted 33 recommendations and not agreed with nine recommendations. I commend the response to the Assembly.

Debate (on motion by Mr Rattenbury) adjourned to the next sitting.
