Recommendation 5 says the coming budget should contain details on costs or phasing of the costs for the capital metro project as far as possible. Recommendation 6 asks the government to determine the full impact that capital metro will have during and after construction on the supply and security of services Icon Water and ActewAGL have responsibility for. Recommendation 7 is that the government have a traffic management plan both during construction and operation, taking into account the effects of capital metro.

Recommendation 8 looks at the RED framework on how we discuss bullying, particularly, and asks the government to do a few things there; recommendation 9 says that quarterly reports on the Mr Fluffy statements should include, where possible, the impact of the scheme on the territory’s budget; recommendation 10 looks at international flights; and recommendation 11 talks about how the government will address its unfunded superannuation liability—all of which, I am sure members will agree, are important issues.

I would like to conclude by thanking my committee colleagues, Mary Porter, Nicole Lawder and Meegan Fitzharris, and Yvette Berry, who was a member of the committee for a significant part of the inquiry. I thank the ministers, accompanying directorate and agency staff and members of governing boards for providing their time, cooperation and expertise during the inquiry process. I am sure members of the committee would like to thank the secretary, Dr Cullen, for all her efforts in assisting us in putting the report together. With that, I commend the report to the Assembly. My committee colleagues may also wish to make some comment.

Question resolved in the affirmative.

Justice—portfolio issues

Ministerial statement

MR RATTENBURY (Molonglo—Minister for Territory and Municipal Services, Minister for Justice, Minister for Sport and Recreation and Minister assisting the Chief Minister on Transport Reform) (10.13), by leave: I present the following paper:

Justice portfolio issues—Ministerial statement, 26 March 2015.

I move:

That the Assembly takes note of the paper.

Madam Speaker, it is now six months since the start of construction of additional facilities at the Alexander Maconochie Centre and timely that I provide an update to the Assembly on this and other important works in my portfolio that relate to Corrective Services. As I have previously explained, construction of the additional facilities is required because of an unprecedented increase in the detainee population, an issue that is affecting each and every state and territory in Australia.
