Page.. 1118..


MS BURCH: They come with pre-set questions. In my first answer I expressed my confidence in the ESA commissioner and also my confidence in the chief officer of ACTAS, his commitment to change, his commitment to making sure that the blueprint for change is implemented and that the service pulls up the internals, so to speak—the culture of the service—to meet the high standard that its operational capacity currently meets.

MADAM SPEAKER: A supplementary question, Ms Lawder.

MS LAWDER: Minister, following the O2C report, do you have full confidence in the senior management of the ACT Ambulance Service?

MS BURCH: I will be short: they can refer to my earlier answers.

MADAM SPEAKER: A supplementary question, Ms Lawder.

MS LAWDER: Minister, have you read all of the report, and what action are you taking as a result?

MS BURCH: Yes, I have read the report. My action, as I made public last week, was the blueprint for change that will see serious reform occur within ACTAS, a timetable for action and an oversight committee. That is what we will deliver for ACTAS. That is what I have confidence that the senior executive, the leadership across ESA and ACTAS, will deliver.

Childcare—centres

MS LAWDER: My question is to the Minister for Planning. We have received a large amount of correspondence about the childcare centre development at 113 Harrington Circuit, Kambah, development application No 201426617. Residents have raised their concerns with us about this childcare centre development. Minister, has this development application been approved and, if so, when was it approved?

MR GENTLEMAN: The directorate has not given me any advice on approval at this stage. My understanding is that it is still under assessment.

MADAM SPEAKER: A supplementary question, Ms Lawder.

MS LAWDER: Minister, how many objections to the childcare centre development at 113 Harrington Circuit, Kambah, have been received?

MR GENTLEMAN: I thank Ms Lawder for her question. There have been a number of comments through the consultation period. I do not have the total number of those comments in front of me, but I am happy to provide them for you. Some of those comments have come through the Tuggeranong Community Council and some directly to me well. I have had consultations and conversations with the community on the development.

MADAM SPEAKER: A supplementary question, Mr Smyth.
