Government investment policy
MR STANHOPE: Yesterday, in question time, I took two questions on notice. The first related to the terms of reference for an inquiry into the territory's investment portfolio. I have the terms of reference and will table them for the information of members.
The second related to a question on notice from Mr Mulcahy. I regret that I did not have the information available to me yesterday in relation to the Chris21 human resources system and miscalculations that have been detected in relation to the payment of superannuation.

Potential inclusion of environmental social and governance issues within Territory investment practices—review.
Chris21 HR system—systematic faults.
ACTION bus service—timetable

I am advised that the introduction of Network 06 and the dissolution of the authority was achieved within an ACTION budget framework that was to achieve an estimated overall saving of $6 million. Regarding the proposed changes, I said in my earlier answer that I have asked the department for a full briefing, including costs.
Members' staff—use of email
MR BARR: Upon reflection on my answer to Mrs Burke's question, I omitted one piece of information; that is, that I received the email at the same time as all other members for Molonglo, on 6 February, but I did not become aware of the nature of the email and that it had been generated from my office until 26 February. I just wanted to clarify absolutely that the email arrived in my office at the same time as it arrived for all other members for Molonglo and the federal Attorney-General, but it was 26 February when I was advised of the origin of the email.
Offensive language—Speaker's ruling
Mr Smyth: Mr Speaker, in question time yesterday a number of insults were thrown across the chamber that I believe offended against standing orders 54, 55 and 57, and
