MR RATTENBURY: Yes, indeed. I am not able to provide the Assembly with an exact date at this time. It will be in this financial year, and I will be happy to provide Dr Bourke with an email update when I do have an exact date.

Ms Gallagher: I ask that all further questions be placed on the notice paper.

Madam Speaker presented the following paper:

Supplementary answers to questions without notice

Canberra Hospital—internal review

MS GALLAGHER: Yesterday Mr Hanson asked me whether any seminars were being conducted as part of this body of work in external locations to the hospital. Dr Brown has not presented at any external seminars, conferences, or workshops regarding the patient safety conversations conducted at Canberra Hospital.

Bushfires—preparedness

MR RATTENBURY: I was asked earlier today about positions in the fire management unit at the Territory and Municipal Services Directorate. I can inform the Assembly that I have been advised that all positions have been backfilled in that unit with suitably qualified officers.

Financial Management Act—consolidated financial report

Paper and statement by minister

MR BARR (Molonglo—Deputy Chief Minister, Treasurer, Minister for Economic Development, Minister for Housing and Minister for Tourism and Events): For the information of members, I present the following paper:

Financial Management Act, pursuant to section 26—Consolidated Financial Report—Financial quarter ending 30 June 2014—2013-14 Interim Result.

I ask leave to make a statement in relation to the paper.

Leave granted.
