    (2) How many private bus drivers have been (a) randomly and (b) routinely breath tested during (i) 2001-02, (ii) 2002-03, (iii) 2003-04, (iv) 2004-05 and (v) 2005-06 to date;

    (3) How many bus drivers in each of the years above have been (a) charged, (b) convicted, (c) suspended from duty or (d) dismissed as a result of a drink driving offence;

    (4) If no bus drivers have been routinely or randomly tested, why not.

    Mr Hargreaves: The answer to the member's question is as follows:

    (1) While the drivers of public and private buses are required to submit to police breath testing in the same way as any other motorist in the ACT, the profession of drivers is not routinely recorded by ACT Policing. It is therefore not possible to provide data on this issue.

    (2) See response to question 1.

    (3) See response to question 1.

    (4) See response to question 1.

    (2) Do all line markings in the ACT meet with Australian Standards; if not, why not;

    (3) Have there been any complaints recorded relating to the marking of road lanes in the ACT; if so, how many complaints have been received during (a) 2005-06 to date,
