Dear Ms Jackel
Thank you for your correspondence of 19 January 2009 seeking comment on the submission made by the General Manager, Queensland Building Services Authority, Mr Ian Jennings, as part of the Independent Review of Government Boards, Committees and Statutory Authorities.
I have reviewed the submission and while I have no detailed comments to make, I can confirm my support for the concept of building industry legislation and regulation amalgamation under one Ministerial portfolio responsibility.
I look forward to an opportunity to consider any final recommendations coming from the review in relation to bodies of interest to the Department of Housing.
For further assistance, you may contact Ms Geraldine O'Grady, General Manager, Organisation Services and Strategy.
