              No confidence in Government - Motion re

              Mr D.S. Baker then moved - That this House, recognising that -

              (a) section 3 of the State Government Insurance Commission Act 1970 makes the Commission subject to the control and directions of the Government through the Treasurer;

              (b)     a review of the SGIC by the Business Operations Reviews Sub-Board of the Government Management Board has reported the following actions which are contrary to the provisions and intent of the Act for which the Treasurer is the Minister responsible:

                        (i) failure to keep separate and distinct funds for insurance business (section 20);

                        (ii)      failure to keep proper accounts and records (section 19);

                        (iii)     carrying out insurance business outside South Australia (section 12);

                        (iv)    failure to follow proper investment procedures and maintain investment guidelines (sections 16 and 16a);

                        (v)     failure to report outside company directorships held by Executives (section 16a);

                        (vi)    failure to maintain a Board of five members (section 3);


                                                                                                  10

 

 

 

              (c) the intention of Parliament in amending the Motor Vehicles Act 1959 in 1986 to contain the cost of compulsory third party insurance has been flouted by illegal interfund loans and other contrived financial arrangements within the SGIC which have reduced the investment income of the CTP fund;

              (d)     Parliament, notwithstanding persistent questions asked about the SGIC's operations over the past two years, has been misled by the Treasurer in the following respects:

                        (i) the prudence of the SGIC's investment performance;

                        (ii)      the management of the Compulsory Third Party insurance fund;

                        (iii)     the advice sought by the Commission before seeking approval for a series of property put options;

                        (iv)    the funding and operations of the SGIC's health insurance;

                        (v)     the cost and returns from SGIC's investment in the radio industry;

                        (vi)    the reasons for the SGIC's recent sale of shares;

              (e) notwithstanding section 5 of the South Australian Timber Corporation Act making the Corporation subject to the control and direction of the Minister of Forests that Corporation and the State Government Insurance Commission has lost up to $60 million through the Scrimber project despite warnings from the Auditor General from 1986 and repeated questions in this House about the viability of the investment;

              (f) notwithstanding section 14 of the Workers Rehabilitation and Compensation Act making the WorkCover Corporation subject to the general direction and control of the Minister, section 66 which requires WorkCover to be fully funded, and an assurance by the Minister of Labour to this House on August 22 1989 that WorkCover was fully funded, WorkCover now faces unfunded liabilities of $250 million and internal estimates of further increases to almost $500 million;

              (g)     this House has no confidence in the Government because of its demonstrated financial incompetence, its failure to enforce the Acts of this Parliament under which its financial institutions operate and its failure to account to this House fully and honestly for financial operations directly funded, underwritten or guaranteed by taxpayers and calls on the Premier and Treasurer to tender the resignation of his Government, forthwith, so that public and business confidence in South Australian can be restored as soon as possible.

              Debate ensued.

              Question put.
