Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2005 Week 9 Hansard (16 August) . . Page.. 2715..


Question resolved in the affirmative.

Legal Affairs-Standing Committee

Scrutiny report 13

MR STEFANIAK: I present the following report:

Legal Affairs-Standing Committee (performing the duties of a Scrutiny of Bills and Subordinate Legislation Committee)-Scrutiny Report 13, dated 9 August 2005, together with the relevant minutes of proceedings.

I seek leave to make a brief statement.

Leave granted.

MR STEFANIAK: Scrutiny report 13 contains the committee's comments on 36 pieces of subordinate legislation and four government responses. The report was circulated to members when the Assembly was not sitting and I commend the report to the Assembly. There is I think, at least in one instance there, a fairly major recommendation in relation to one of the bits of subordinate legislation, which I certainly hope the government can take on board to alleviate the problem that arises there.

Questions without notice

Health-asthma

MR SMYTH: My question is directed to the Minister for Health and relates to the asthma treatment services in the ACT. A recent report noted that Australia still has some of the world's highest rates of asthma and it is recognised as a national health priority. It is well recognised that education for sufferers is vital in the management of the disease. A constituent has informed me that the Calvary Hospital no longer has any asthma educators and no longer runs an asthma clinic. Is it the case that Calvary has scrapped its asthma clinic and no longer has the asthma educators? If so, why?
