Joint Standing Committee on Integrity Calls for Further Submissions into the Functions, Powers and Operations of the Tasmanian Integrity Commission

Posted by Barbara Etter APM on 3 August 2014 | 1 Comments

An ad on page 53 of Saturday's Mercury advises that the Joint Standing Commitee on Integrity which is required under the Integrity Commission Act 2009 to undertake a review after three years of the commencement of the Commission's operations, is calling for further submissions as part of the 3 year review. This is more than likely as a result of the State election that was held in March 2014 and led to a change in membership of the Committee. Submissions are due by Friday 22 August.  The Integrity Commission will have been in operation for four years on 1 October 2014. It is due for an independent/external review at the 5 year mark. Tasmania so badly needs a properly empowered, structured and resourced anti-corruption authority with appropriate investigative powers.

  • Tasmanians are calling loudly for what you refer to as "a properly empowered, structured and resourced anti-corruption authority with appropriate investigative powers".

    In reality, who is truly listening to citizens calls for what is seen as a vital need?

    Hopefully, persons will make valuable submissions to the joint standing parliamentary committee. This matter is urgent.
