Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2014 Week 12 Hansard (30 October) . .

Page.. 3876..

MS BURCH: The child development framework is a work in progress. There is a commitment from the Education and Training Directorate, Therapy ACT, Disability ACT and Health to come together, as we transition into the national disability insurance scheme, about how we have that new system in place for those young ones that need our support through disability or developmental delays. So all of those agencies will form part of that new system. The final detail is not there, Mr Wall. Again I encourage you to go back and read Hansard and you will perhaps find that clarity.

MADAM SPEAKER: A supplementary question, Mr Doszpot.

MR DOSZPOT: Minister, what consultation has been undertaken with DET staff on this service, and when did consultation take place?

MADAM SPEAKER: On which staff, Mr Doszpot?

MR DOSZPOT: DET, department of education and training.

MS BURCH: I will just clarify: it is the Education and Training Directorate these days, for Mr Doszpot's information.

This is a work in progress. It is, as I have said, a framework to make sure that as we move through this transition to the NDIS, when we withdraw from specialist disability services, as we have stated and as the Canberra Liberals support-that is their policy position, to support this—that consultation process will be fulsome for all staff.

MADAM SPEAKER: A supplementary question, Dr Bourke.

DR BOURKE: Minister, how much did the commonwealth cut from the support from child and family centres which you mentioned in your original answer?

MADAM SPEAKER: It is not relevant. I rule it out of order. The question was about the child service framework for 2015.

Dr Bourke: On the point of order—

MADAM SPEAKER: No, I have made a ruling. My ruling is that it is out of order.

Schools—chaplaincy services

MRS JONES: My question is addressed to the Minister for Education and Training, on the matter of the school chaplaincy services. Minister, there is doubt in the community about the status of this program and, given the uncertainty, would you please confirm that those schools that currently have a chaplain will continue to have one until 2018, regardless of whether they are in the government or non-government sectors?
