Written answers (Question to Public)

The Civil Service Regulation (Amendment) Bill has priority status for publication this session. While this is a relatively short Bill, there are a number of legal matters that need to be resolved before the Bill can be finalised for publication. Officials in my Department and in the Office of the Attorney General are working on the drafting of this Bill. When this drafting process is finalised I will seek Government approval to publish the Bill.
