Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2009 Week 11 Hansard (17 September) . . Page.. 4278..


(2) When will the next Australian Health Ministers Conference be held and will the Amendment No 4 2009 be voted on at this conference; if not, what is the anticipated date that Amendment No 4 2009 will be voted on.

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

(1) I cannot answer this question definitively, and can only really speculate.

Amendment No 4, 2009 to the National Directory for Radiation Protection (the NDRP) on solaria will be considered by Australian Health Ministers Conference (AHMC) out of session. At this time I do not have information as to when that out of session consideration will begin, or when it will conclude. I anticipate that Amendment No 4, 2009 to the NDRP will be eventually passed by AHMC as it was endorsed by the Australian Health Minister's Advisory Council, however I also cannot provide any assurance of that outcome.

If Amendment No 4, 2009 to the NDRP is approved by AHMC the amendment to the NDRP should be made soon afterwards. The NDRP, as amended from time to time, is applied and adopted by the ACT Radiation Protection Act 2006 automatically. I remain hopeful that this process should conclude before the end of 2009.

(2) There was a AHMC meeting on 4 September 2009, however Amendment No 4, 2009 to the NDRP on solaria was not on the agenda for that meeting. I am advised that Amendment No 4, 2009 will be considered by AHMC out of session in the coming months. I am unable to speculate as to when an AHMC decision on Amendment No 4, 2009 will be reached.

(1) How many Calvary Private Hospital (CPH) executive staff have been transferred to the Public Division in the last three months.

(2) When did these transfers occur.

(3) Why did these transfers occur.

(4) Were the staff able to transfer all of their entitlements.

(5) If these staff choose redundancies in the next 12 months, will the ACT Government be responsible for the financial costs associated.

(6) What is the anticipated total financial cost to the ACT Government if all of these staff choose redundancies in the next 12 months.

(7) What other CPH staff are able to transfer to ACT Government employment and transfer all of their entitlements.

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