Item 5: Order Paper 112/11-15 28 January 2013
Motion: Review of Public Administration
That this Assembly acknowledges the significant workload and substantial costs involved in the delivery of the Executive's Local Government reform transition as proposed under the Review of Public Administration; believes that the Executive should provide financial support for the reform process, including for future rates convergence; and calls on the Executive to provide financial support to councils to cover the upfront costs of RPA, which yield no short term savings, and to ensure that these costs do not result in rate increases.
[Mrs D Kelly]
[Mr C Eastwood]
The Speaker has selected the following Amendment for debate:
Proposed: Leave out all after ‘Administration;’ and insert:
‘recognises that Local Government will be the beneficiary of the savings that result from reform; and calls on the Minister of the Environment to engage with the Minister of Finance and Personnel on financing reform and, in particular, on the issue of rates convergence with the aim of developing a solution that does not result in rate increases.'
