We will continue to focus our efforts to build trust, respect and community resilience, so we continue to have, quite simply, the world's best city to live in, and that is no small way due to the fact that we have such a vibrant multicultural community.

MADAM SPEAKER: A supplementary question, Mrs Jones.

MRS JONES: Minister, are you able to table a list of who was invited to today's forum and also who will be invited to be involved in the faith groups and cultural groups?

Mrs Jones: On a point of order, on relevance, not to try to create problems but I really wanted to know who was invited and who will be invited, which was the question I was concerned about.

MADAM SPEAKER: I am sure that Minister Burch heard the question. If you are going to be that quick off the mark, then it is a bit difficult for ministers. Minister, if you could keep in mind Mrs Jones's question when you are answering the question.

MS BURCH: Yes. There will be a full list of the names of those that participated. I am not quite sure if I can include those that were invited. I will put as much information as I can into a final report. Certainly, when the reference group is finalised, the names of those people will be made public. They are out of our multifaith and our multicultural community. I hope to see them harnessing the energy and enthusiasm from today and putting that into actions over the next month.

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