I now table that document for the benefit of members. I present the following paper:
Straws Suck—ACTsmart campaign.
MR WALL: In Mr Rattenbury’s answer to my question relating to bullying in mental health he sought some extra guidance as to a time frame for the accounts of reported cases of bullying. In the interests of having relevant data, can we perhaps limit it to this parliamentary term.
MS LEE: Just on that follow-up Minister Rattenbury provided on straws, the question specifically and clearly was the consultation with disability groups, not another government department.
Auditor-General’s report No 8 of 2018—government response
Paper and statement by minister
MS BERRY (Ginninderra—Deputy Chief Minister, Minister for Education and Early Childhood Development, Minister for Housing and Suburban Development, Minister for the Prevention of Domestic and Family Violence, Minister for Sport and Recreation and Minister for Women) (3.15): For the information of members, I present the following paper:
Auditor-General Act, pursuant to subsection 21(1)—Auditor-General’s Report No 8/2018—Assembly of rural land west of Canberra—Government response.
I ask leave to make a statement in relation to the paper.
MS BERRY: On 29 June this year the Auditor-General’s report on the assembly of rural land west of Canberra was tabled in the Legislative Assembly. In accordance with the Auditor-General Act 1996, I am required to present a written response to the report to the Legislative Assembly within four months.
The Auditor-General’s report has identified issues with the activities of the former Land Development Agency. This government has previously acknowledged issues with record-keeping practices and decision-making by the former Land Development Agency. The audit focused only on the activities of the former entity and did not consider the significant improvements made since that time.
There has been significant effort made to establish robust governance arrangements within the Environment, Planning and Sustainable Development Directorate and the Suburban Land Agency and the City Renewal Authority. Strong governance, robust processes and accountability to the government and the community are priorities for these agencies.
