Legislative Assembly for the ACT: Week 5 Hansard (25 May) . . Page.. 2185..


the responses to the questions at that time will be based only on the records and as such any information not in the records will not be available to Totalcare.

The requests place a significant impost on Totalcare's available resources including access to records, time and cost of answering the thirty-one Questions on Notice (sub-questions included). As you would also know, the Board and management of Totalcare are working extremely hard to return the various business units to the ACT Public Service.

In light of these concerns, I am not prepared to respond to the Questions on Notice while the current Legislative Assembly motion about the Quarry remains unresolved. This recognises the primacy of the Assembly in terms of the requests you have made and that the information contained in the motion broadly encompasses all the different requests that you have made.
