Ms BURCH (in reply to questions by Mr Doszpot and Mrs Dunne): I would like to inform the Assembly that neither the Department of Education and Training nor the Department of Disability, Housing and Community Services are aware of any such services being transferred from the Department of Education and Training to the Department of Disability, Housing and Community Services. I ask that the Members please clarify which services they are referring to.
