MR CORBELL: Yes, ACT Health has commissioned those surveys.

Mr Hanson: On a point of order, Madam Speaker.


Mr Hanson: The full question also asked whether the minister would table the results of those surveys in the Assembly.

MADAM SPEAKER: I can invite the minister to be directly relevant.

MR CORBELL: I have concluded my answer.

MADAM SPEAKER: A supplementary question, Mr Doszpot.

MR DOSZPOT: Minister, what would the consequences be of Canberra Hospital not being nationally accredited?

MR CORBELL: I have every confidence that Canberra Hospital will be nationally accredited. It is an important process and one which our hospital staff and ACT Health as a whole are investing considerable effort in. I have every confidence that they are well placed for that accreditation survey.

MADAM SPEAKER: A supplementary question, Mr Doszpot.

MR DOSZPOT: Minister, why won't you table the surveys?

MR CORBELL: The surveys are prepared for the purposes of preparing the hospital and its staff for the accreditation process. They are not appropriate for broad release or publication. They are prepared for internal purposes to prepare for the accreditation process.

Roads—speed cameras

MR COE: My question is to the Minister for Justice. Last year the government commissioned UNSW to conduct an evaluation of and report on the ACT road safety camera program. The report cost $163,000 and was received by the government in June last year. The government has refused to release the report even after an FOI request from the Canberra Times and also one from me. The Canberra Times reported on 5 February that "its release was also blocked under freedom of information rules in October, when the government said it planned to table the report in the Legislative Assembly this month".

A letter from the Justice and Community Safety Directorate to me on 10 April stated:

Access to ... the report prepared by the contractor [will] be deferred until after it has been presented to the Legislative Assembly.
