MADAM SPEAKER: Sit down, Mr Hanson. That is not a point of order.

Mr Corbell: Nice try.

MADAM SPEAKER: It is not even a nice try.

MR GENTLEMAN: There are quite a number of rules in relation to home businesses. They vary, depending on the sort of home business. There are quite a lot of regulations on development applications as well, in regard to amending properties for home businesses. If members opposite wish to know, or my colleagues, I will certainly get some more detail.

MADAM SPEAKER: A supplementary question, Mr Coe.

MR COE: Minister, will the facility be regarded as a home-based business or a stand-alone commercial enterprise, and what land is available elsewhere in Kambah in a commercial or community zone?

MR GENTLEMAN: I thank Mr Coe for his question. In regard to the number of other childcare centres in the area—I am sorry, if he could just read it again.

MR COE: Sure. The first part was: will it be regarded as a home-based business or a stand-alone commercial enterprise, and, secondly, what land is available in Kambah in the commercial or community zones?

MR GENTLEMAN: I will have to take the detail of that on notice. I will certainly come back to the member with those answers.

Health—maternity services

MRS JONES: My question is to the Chief Minister. Minister, in the Canberra Times of 14 January 2015 it was reported that ACT Health was considering proscribing hospital attendance for mothers-to-be with a postcode test. I quote from the Canberra Times:

Chief Minister Andrew Barr admitted the proposal would limit Canberra mothers' choices, but told the ABC that ACT Health was looking for the "least worst" option. Mr Barr stressed ACT Health would "engage broadly" with the community for an extended period before a decision was made.

Chief Minister, given your comments, will you rule out limiting mothers' choice of hospitals?

MADAM SPEAKER: I am not quite sure why the Chief Minister was asked that question.

MR BARR: I was acting health minister.
