ensure that ongoing monitoring and compliance of a very complex set of recommendations is adhered to.

Before concluding today, I would again like to thank very much members of the external review panel who have been fundamental in providing comprehensive advice to the system-wide review team. Without this guidance, the directorate would not be in the position that they are in today, ready to move forward beyond the review.

I would also like to acknowledge the very hard, dedicated and skilled work of staff in the ACT Health Directorate and the support that has been shown from external bodies while we have worked through this important review.

The review is due to be completed by the directorate at the end of next month. The government will then consider the final outcomes and recommendations of the review. In the coming months, I will then make further announcements on the review and the work that will be undertaken to continue to improve our data systems and processes moving forward. I present the following paper:

ACT Health System-Wide Data Review Quarterly Update—February 2018—Ministerial statement, 22 February 2018.

I move:

That the Assembly take note of the paper.

Question resolved in the affirmative.

Courts and Other Justice Legislation Amendment Bill 2018

Mr Ramsay, pursuant to notice, presented the bill, its explanatory statement and a Human Rights Act compatibility statement.

Title read by Clerk.

MR RAMSAY (Ginninderra—Attorney-General, Minister for Regulatory Services, Minister for the Arts and Community Events and Minister for Veterans and Seniors) (10.15): I move:

That this bill be agreed to in principle.

I am pleased to present the Courts and Other Justice Legislation Amendment Bill 2018 to the Legislative Assembly. The bill makes a range of amendments to 16 acts. The legislation will facilitate access to justice by introducing efficiency measures, which will mean less time and less red tape for people involved in litigation to get outcomes. The legislation will respond to issues identified in the courts to help them better administer their procedures and cases to ensure fair outcomes. It will also introduce changes to how oaths and affirmations are administered.
