Fireworks-reports

(Question No 347)

Mr Pratt asked the Minister for Industrial Relations, upon notice, on 5 April 2005:

(1) Further to the reply to question on notice No 150, how does the figure of 112 reports regarding fireworks during the Queen's Birthday long weekend in 2004 compare to the number of reports on that same weekend in (a) 2003, (b) 2002, (c) 2001 and (d) 2000;

(2) Will there be any changes to fireworks regulations leading into the 2005 Queen's Birthday long weekend.

Ms Gallagher: The answer to the member's question is as follows:

(1) The figure of 112 reports provided in the reply to question on notice No 150 includes the reports received by an ACT WorkCover inspector attached to the Australian Federal Police Communications Centre over the Queen's Birthday long weekend. Prior to 2004 there was no ACT WorkCover inspector undertaking this role.

(a)

For 2003 ACT WorkCover and the Australian Federal Police received 86 complaints regarding fireworks over the three day period of the Queen's Birthday long weekend.

(b) (c) and (d)

For 2002, 2001 and 2000 ACT WorkCover does not have records of the number of fireworks complaints received specifically during the Queen's Birthday long weekend. The Australian Federal Police has advised it received no reports regarding fireworks during the 2002, 2001 and 2000 Queen's Birthday long weekend periods.

(2) No

(2) What costs have been incurred in the current or previous Assembly against Ministers, excluding personal staff disputes or defamation, which you have already identified have not been matters of concern.
