Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2014 Week 9 Hansard (18 September) . .

Page.. 2949..

My answer to Mr Smyth's question is as follows. The ACT Ambulance Service uses software version 2.3.1 of VACIS for its electronic patient care record system. I can advise Mr Smyth that, contrary to his claims, version 2.3.1 is the newest software version available. Version 2.3.1 is also being used by the New South Wales Ambulance Service, Ambulance Victoria and Ambulance Tasmania. Indeed, the Queensland Ambulance Service is planning to deploy version 2.3.1 in the near future, and South Australia does not yet use this version.

I am further advised that software version 3 is not used by any ambulance jurisdiction in Australia as it remains under development and is not due for pilot deployment until February next year.

Auditor-General Act—Auditor-General's Report No 6/2014—Annual Report 2013-14, dated 18 September 2014.

Discussion of matter of public importance

MADAM SPEAKER: I have received letters from Ms Berry, Dr Bourke, Mr Doszpot, Mr Hanson, Mrs Jones, Ms Lawder, Mr Smyth and Mr Wall proposing that matters of public importance be submitted to the Assembly. In accordance with standing order 79, I have determined that the matter proposed by Mr Hanson be submitted to the Assembly, namely:

The importance of getting priorities right for public transport.

MR HANSON (Molonglo—Leader of the Opposition) (3.25): I am a little disappointed by the exodus from the chamber, Madam Speaker. I thought people would want to stay around for this important matter of public importance. It actually gives me great pleasure to address this issue in this place and to consider what are the priorities that we should be putting forward in the public transport arena but also, more broadly, where are the priorities for government, because you cannot do it all. If you are going to have a good public transport system, there are things that you can do and things that you cannot do if you want to achieve that.
