government response, we have accepted five of the committee’s recommendations, and the sixth has been accepted in principle.

I would also like to take this opportunity to thank the committee secretary for his work to facilitate the committee’s consideration of this bill in a comparatively condensed time frame. Finally, I would like to put on record my thanks to those individuals, unions, businesses and industry groups who made submissions and appeared before the committee to provide evidence. In particular, I would like to extend a note of thanks to those workers who gave up their own time to appear before the committee.

As the committee’s report notes, the government has also been undertaking a separate public consultation on a draft of the Government Procurement (Secure Local Jobs) Amendment Regulation 2018, the consultation draft of the Secure Local Jobs Code and the consultation draft model contract terms and conditions.

Relevant evidence provided to the committee inquiry as well as the submissions made to the public consultation are currently being considered in the finalisation of the subordinate instruments that form part of the overall secure local jobs package. I look forward to debating this legislation later in the week and finalising the remaining elements of the package to deliver on the ACT government’s commitment to ensure that public money goes only to businesses that do the right thing by their workers.
