Anna Bligh caves in on departmental reform ...

The Bligh Government has baulked at adopting radical proposals to get rid of hundreds of statutory authorities and other public bodies despite being told the move would immediately save $18 million.

An independent review of more than 450 government organisations has recommended that 218 should be abolished, sold or merged with other bodies.

Bodies slated for abolition include the
Queensland Water Commission and Tourism Queensland.

The review, commissioned by Premier Anna Bligh last year, insisted its proposals were in the public interest.

But Premier Anna Bligh has stopped short of endorsing the recommendations, citing the impact it could have on jobs. She has instead ordered her ministers to consider its implications and report in a month.

See - Courier Mail - Call to slash bureaucracy not a priority, says Premier.

Queensland Water Commission

The Queensland Water Commission should be abolished and its functions should be
transferred into the Department of Natural Resources and Water.
