Disability services—autism spectrum disorder

Multicultural affairs—National Multicultural Festival

MS BURCH: On Tuesday Mr Wall asked about the number of children on Therapy ACT's waiting list for autism assessment. The number is 19.

In reference to the comments around the multicultural festival, there was a letter from Mr Wall around the 10th, as I understand. As I indicated, there was correspondence to me about the management of one of the stages, and that was dealt with through OMA. There was some correspondence to me about the convenience of stalls moving out of the top end car park. That is all I am aware of. If I find anything else, I will let you know. But if there is a specific question, please let me know as well.
