Options Considered

7.The Department considered retaining the status quo with no change to the legislative framework for harbour authorities.  However, this would have required the Department to rely solely on an increase in the number of district council representatives on each of the Harbour Boards, and the voluntary arrangements in respect of the Memoranda of Understanding and the Codes of Practice to deliver the desired improvements in public accountability.
