MADAM SPEAKER: A supplementary question, Mr Wall.

MR WALL: Minister, what reasons were given to you or your directorate by WorkSafe ACT explaining what led them to issue improvement notices to protect workers from bullying?

MR CORBELL: Could you repeat the question?

MR WALL: Minister, what reasons were given to you or your directorate by WorkSafe ACT explaining what led them to issue improvement notices to protect workers from bullying?

MR CORBELL: Again, I refer Mr Wall to the evidence that has already been given on this matter both by my directorate and also by the Work Safety Commissioner. That is an accurate summation of the circumstances.

MADAM SPEAKER: A supplementary question, Mr Smyth.

MR SMYTH: Minister, will you guarantee that you have taken all steps under your ministerial responsibilities to protect and ensure the wellbeing of your staff?

MR CORBELL: Yes, Madam Speaker, I always take all steps I need to take as a minister to ensure that my directorate is putting in place the appropriate procedures and practices needed to address these types of concerns.

MADAM SPEAKER: A supplementary question, Mr Smyth.

MR SMYTH: Minister, are you aware of other instances where improvement notices have been issued by WorkSafe ACT or are still pending?

MR CORBELL: Without knowing against whom, it is difficult to answer that question.

Mr Smyth: Well, the question—

MADAM SPEAKER: No, you have asked your question, Mr Smyth.

Mr Smyth: The very first question was about the Emergency Services Agency.

MADAM SPEAKER: Well, it was not clear to me that your question referred to the Emergency Services Agency.

Economy—employment growth

DR BOURKE: My question is to the Treasurer. Can the Treasurer please update members on the unemployment rate in the ACT and how the ACT government is supporting job growth?
