Andrew's elevation to Chief Minister won't impact on the outcome.

Chief Minister, did you or your staff provide advice to ClubsACT in 2014 that you supported poker machines accepting $50 notes?

MR BARR: No. In fact, I was quite surprised to read that because it was quite clear that, in this instance, the executive director of ClubsACT got that spectacularly wrong.

MADAM SPEAKER: A supplementary question, Mr Wall.

MR WALL: Chief Minister, did you or any member of your staff tell anyone that you supported poker machines accepting $50 notes?

MR BARR: No.

MADAM SPEAKER: A supplementary question, Mr Smyth.

MR SMYTH: Chief Minister, why is it that the head of ClubsACT and member clubs knew about this proposal in December 2014, but you claim that you did not know about the regulation until 12 January 2015?

MR BARR: That is indeed an issue that concerned me. I took the action that I did at the beginning of the year in response to that.

MADAM SPEAKER: A supplementary question, Mr Smyth.

MR SMYTH: Chief Minister, did you support poker machines in the ACT being able to accept $50 notes until your meeting with Mr Rattenbury on 13 January 2015?

MR BARR: No.

ACT Emergency Services Agency—management

MR SMYTH: My question is to the minister for emergency services. Minister, following the O2C report, do you have full confidence in the emergency services commissioner?

MS BURCH: I do. I know that the commissioner and the chief officers across the different agencies are fully committed to supporting this community and doing all they can to make sure that they deliver first-rate services. In regard to the ACT Ambulance Service, the chief officer there is 100 per cent committed to delivering on the blueprint for change.

MADAM SPEAKER: A supplementary question, Mr Smyth.

MR SMYTH: Minister, following the O2C report into the ACT Ambulance Service, do you have full confidence in the chief officer of the ACT Ambulance Service?
