    Mandatory Unit Pricing of Grocery Products.doc

    In September 2008, the Queensland Government approved and released draft law proposing unit pricing of grocery products in supermarkets. In March 2009, the Australian Government released a draft mandatory national code for unit pricing of grocery products. The national code - the Retail Grocery Industry (Unit Pricing) Code of Conduct, commenced on 1 July 2009 and requires industry compliance across Australia by 1 December 2009. Cabinet approved to not introduce mandatory unit pricing measures in Queensland in addition to the Commonwealth scheme. Cabinet approved that the Office of Fair-Trading will monitor the effectiveness of the code over a 12 month period with a view to supplement the national code if necessary. Attachments Nil.

    Strategic Response to the State Penalties Enforcement Registry outstanding fine pool.doc

    The State Penalties Enforcement Registry (SPER) has been responsible for collecting unpaid fines in Queensland since 2000. It provides debtors with a wide range of flexible payment options to facilitate compliance by debtors. SPER recovers court ordered fines, which are paid into consolidated revenue, and court ordered restitution or compensation which is paid to victims of crime. The effective enforcement of court fines reduces pressure on the courts by removing lower level offences from the court system. SPER also recovers infringement notice penalties issued by state government agencies and other administering authorities (for example local authorities). Cabinet approved the following activities to facilitate debtor compliance and enhance enforcement: expansion of driver licence suspension to non-motor vehicle related offences to capture individuals who incur fines for non-motor vehicle offences. Queensland and the Australian Capital Territory are the only jurisdictions that do not currently use dr

    National Regulation Impact Statement for proposed Electrical Equipment Safety System.doc

    Cabinet – July 2009 National Regulation Impact Statement for proposed Electrical Equipment Safety System Attorney-General and Minister for Industrial Relations The Electrical Regulatory Authorities Council (ERAC) is the peak body of electrical safety regulators in Australia and New Zealand and acts to ensure electrical safety regulatory systems are contemporary and harmonised wherever possible. A number of emerging challenges and inconsistencies with the current electrical equipment safety systems across Australia led ERAC to commission a comprehensive and formal review in 2007. A number of recommendations were made to improve and harmonise the Electrical Equipment Safety System (EESS) and were accepted by ERAC at that time. In its role as chair and secretariat for ERAC, Queensland’s Electrical Safety Office has been facilitating the process to implement the review recommendations, including preparation of a national Regulation Impact Statement (RIS) on the proposed EESS.

    Requirement for pool filtration systems to be demand response active.doc

    In Queensland, peak electricity demand is a key driver of electricity infrastructure expenditure. Approximately 11 per cent of distribution network capacity is built to meet a level of demand which only occurs approximately one per cent of the time. For example, in south-east Queensland, approximately $700 million worth of assets are used only three days per year. One of the most effective ways to reduce this cost impost is to shift the time of energy use from peak demand periods which reduces the capacity needed to cater for these relatively infrequent demand levels. Each year approximately 9,500 newly constructed swimming pools contribute an additional 6.3 megawatts (MW) to Queensland’s peak load which equates to $18.81 million worth of electricity infrastructure annually. By 2020, under a “business as usual” scenario pool filtration systems will contribute an estimated 63 MW to peak demand requiring infrastructure expenditure of $188 million. The primary objective of this proposal is to reduce the contr

    Logan Beenleigh Young Persons Project.doc

    The Logan-Beenleigh Young Persons Project is part of the Queensland Government’s commitment to tackling social exclusion. It is based on evidence that there are pockets of entrenched disadvantage in Queensland where, despite increasing government investment, the demand for intensive and costly interventions rise. An integrated service delivery model was developed, which provides an opportunity for government and non-government service providers to work together in new ways to achieve better client outcomes. The target group is disadvantaged young people with multiple problems. The Logan-Beenleigh area is the first trial site and there is an intention to roll out the components of the model into other priority locations. Cabinet noted the implementation progress of the Logan-Beenleigh Young Persons Project. Cabinet noted that the core components of the Logan-Beenleigh Young Persons Project will be implemented in other priority locations. Attachments: Nil XXX – month year submission s
