Asbestos related works across Canberra—Minister’s annual statement—Ministerial statement, 14 August 2018.
That the Assembly take note of the paper.
Question resolved in the affirmative.
Government Procurement (Secure Local Jobs) Amendment Bill 2018
Statement by minister
MS STEPHEN-SMITH (Kurrajong—Minister for Community Services and Social Inclusion, Minister for Disability, Children and Youth, Minister for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Affairs, Minister for Multicultural Affairs and Minister for Workplace Safety and Industrial Relations) (11.01), by leave: I wish to correct the record in relation to a statement I made in the presentation speech for the Government Procurement (Secure Local Jobs) Amendment Bill 2018.
On 2 August I advised the Assembly that more than 1,500 companies currently hold certificates under the existing industrial relations and employment certification regime. This figure was based on a misreading of the ACT government procurement and capital works listing of compliant contractors, which has more than 1,500 entries but includes around 200 certificate numbers that do not have a business name attached to them. On further investigation via the ACT government open data portal, I found that the actual number of industrial relations and employment certificate holders, as of 3 August 2018 is 1,341, and I correct the record accordingly.
Motion (by Mr Gentleman) agreed to, with the concurrence of an absolute majority:
That so much of the standing orders be suspended as would prevent orders of the day, Assembly business, relating to the Report of the Select Committee on Estimates 2018-2019 and the Government response, being called on and debated cognately with orders of the day Nos 1 and 2, Executive business, Appropriation Bill 2018-2019 and Appropriation (Office of the Legislative Assembly) Bill 2018-2019.
