Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2013 Week 10 Hansard (15 August) . . Page.. 3118..


MR DOSZPOT: My apologies once again. Minister, I ask again: which public high schools in Canberra are fully subscribed and for what years, and will you this time provide an accurate response?

MS BURCH: I will take that one on notice, Madam Speaker.

MADAM SPEAKER: Supplementary question, Ms Lawder.

MS LAWDER: Minister, will you undertake to regularly provide accurate data on school capacity and attendance to the Assembly, to avoid similar errors in the future?

Ms Burch: Can you repeat the front part of that.

MS LAWDER: Minister, will you undertake to regularly provide accurate data on school capacity and attendance to the Assembly, to avoid similar errors in the future?

MS BURCH: I am not quite sure if you are asking me to provide routine and regular reports, but there is information available through the directorate website, through My School and other avenues, about what the numbers of enrolments are.

Mr Hanson interjecting—

MS BURCH: We do assess this every year. That is publicly available online and that is the most relevant, up-to-date information available.

MADAM SPEAKER: Have you got a point of order, Mr Hanson?

Mr Hanson: I have got a point of order on relevance. The question asked also for capacity. I do not think the minister has come to the issue of capacity.

MADAM SPEAKER: Ms Burch, do you have anything to add on the issue of capacity?

MS BURCH: No.

MADAM SPEAKER: A supplementary question, Dr Bourke.

DR BOURKE: Minister, could you tell us more about the state of enrolments in ACT public schools?

MADAM SPEAKER: The question was about capacity figures, a question on notice in estimates and an FOI report. The questions that led from that were about whether the committee had been misled, and then there were two questions about capacity. I do not think that a question about enrolments is in order.

Dr Bourke: On a point of order, Madam Speaker, capacity is enrolment. It is another word, in the same way that yesterday we had discussions around "cardiac"and "heart".
