MS BURCH: You mumbled most of that. Can you repeat it?

MADAM SPEAKER: Could you repeat that, Mr Smyth? I did not hear it all.

MR SMYTH: I am terribly sorry. Minister, are there any alternative plans being considered for equestrian users of EPIC, given that some of the stables have been identified as containing asbestos?

MADAM SPEAKER: It does sort of relate but it also probably relates to EPIC. Does somebody else want to answer it or is Minister Burch able to answer it?

MS BURCH: I am quite happy to answer it. The co-location study is considering work, and when that report is finalised we will come back and inform the Assembly and the codes of that report.

Education—teaching hours

MR DOSZPOT: My question is to the minister for education. Minister, in response to a question asked last Tuesday about teaching hours, you said:

That is not the only work that teachers do; they do other bits and pieces that they refer to in the survey as school-related activity.

Minister, what do you regard as "bits and pieces", given you only ever refer to face-to-face teaching hours as those that count?

MS BURCH: I thank Mr Doszpot for his question. I think he is referring to a survey that was put out last week. If you go to table 5.3, under "Teachers average hours per week on school-related activities by full-time staff", the survey report had teaching students in schools, either in whole classroom groups or working as an individual, planning or work to prepare lessons, administrative duties in schools and out-of-school care, working collaboratively with colleagues, for example, engaging professionally with parents, carers and the community, and total hours spent on school-related work in a typical week. That is some of the activity that that survey refers to.

Mr Doszpot: Madam Speaker, according to standing order 118, I am asking for relevance to the way the minister answered that question.

MADAM SPEAKER: I think Minister Burch has finished answering the question, so it is too late to—

Mr Doszpot: My question was not answered.

MADAM SPEAKER: I cannot direct the minister to answer it in the way that you want it answered. Minister Burch has answered the question and sat down. You have a supplementary question, Mr Doszpot.
