Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2009 Week 10 Hansard (26 August) . . Page.. 3698..


MR STANHOPE (continuing):

There is an issue in relation to egg product, Ms Le Couteur, so I will probably need to clarify that. I understand that almost all egg product that is sold is comprised of battery cage produced eggs. I think there is probably a need to distinguish between actual eggs that are purchased and egg products.

To summarise, to conclude, the most recent advice available to me is that all of the ACT institutions that purchase eggs now purchase non-battery cage eggs. I do make this distinguishing point in relation to the purchase of egg product by those institutions that continue to purchase egg product: that egg product is probably battery cage eggs. I will confirm that and respond in full.

MR SPEAKER: Ms Le Couteur, a supplementary question?

MS LE COUTEUR: Thank you, Mr Speaker. Mr Stanhope, where are the non-cage eggs used by government agencies sourced from? How many are sourced from producers in the ACT?

MR STANHOPE: I do have to take the question on notice. I will find out the answer and get back to you.

Department of Territory and Municipal Services—strategic budget review

MR DOSZPOT: My question is to the Minister for Territory and Municipal Services. Minister, you have recently tabled a report from Ernst & Young which details, amongst other things, the extent of the financial blow-out in the department. Minister, is there another report about TAMS commissioned by the government and completed by Ernst & Young that has not been tabled in the Assembly? If the report does exist, will you table it in the Assembly today; if not, why not?

MR STANHOPE: I am dreadfully sorry, Mr Doszpot. Could you repeat the question, please?

MR DOSZPOT: Sure. Minister, you have recently tabled a report from Ernst & Young which details, amongst other things, the extent of the financial blow-out in the department. Minister, is there another report about TAMS commissioned by the government and completed by Ernst & Young that has not been tabled in the Assembly? If the report does exist, will you table it in the Assembly today; if not, why not?

MR STANHOPE: Thank you, Mr Doszpot, for your courtesy in repeating the question. Just before answering, it is relevant, and just to be fair, that I should inform the Assembly of Mr Doszpot's views on banning fireworks.

Mrs Dunne: Relevance, Mr Speaker.

MR STANHOPE: Mr Doszpot's stance—

MR SPEAKER: Order! Mr Stanhope, this is not relevant.
