panel. I am quite happy, as I answered previously, to bring that, when it is finalised, back to the Assembly.

MR SPEAKER: A supplementary question, Ms Bresnan.

MS BRESNAN: Thank you, Mr Speaker. Minister, have the members of the Youth Justice Implementation Taskforce been formally informed of the proposed appointment time frame and role of the youth justice advisory panel? If not, when will this happen?

MS BURCH: I think I have indicated in a number of answers just now that there is no definitive date or model. When that happens, I will bring that back.

Australia Day—protest

MR COE: I have a question for the Minister for Indigenous affairs about your office's involvement in the protest at the Lobby Restaurant on Australia Day in terms of the circumstances leading to it. Minister, why did your office refer the Prime Minister's office to Kim Sattler?

DR BOURKE: I thank the member for his question. Because they asked for a media contact.

MR SPEAKER: Mr Coe, a supplementary.

MR COE: My supplementary question is: was your office attended on 26 January, that being a public holiday?

DR BOURKE: I thank the member for his question. In this day and age, mobile phones are useful forms of communication, and that was what was used on this occasion.

Members interjecting—

MR SPEAKER: Order, members! This matter will be taken up elsewhere. Mr Hargreaves has the floor.

MR HARGREAVES: Is it not true, minister, that Ms Kim Sattler is, in fact, quite a leading member of our Indigenous community here in the ACT and has a very, very strong and long record of advocacy on behalf of her community?

DR BOURKE: I thank the member for his question. I was not aware that Ms Sattler was a member of the ACT Indigenous community. As far as I know, her role as secretary of UnionsACT has been the same as other previous incumbents of that office for many years, which has been to provide support to the tent embassy.

MR HANSON: Supplementary, Mr Speaker.

MR SPEAKER: Yes, Mr Hanson.
