MS LAWDER: Chief Minister, how will building a new public housing development in east Greenway, where there are no local shops and inconvenient public transport, enable public housing tenants to access local services and actively participate in their community?

MADAM SPEAKER: A supplementary question, Mr Smyth.

MR SMYTH: Chief Minister, what has been the public housing renewal task force response to the public feedback received about this development?

MR BARR: They have actively considered the range of representations and views on the specific issue, commissioned further studies and made alterations.

MADAM SPEAKER: Supplementary question, Mr Smyth.

MR BARR: Broadly consistent with overall public housing densities around various suburbs in the ACT.

MR HINDER: Thank you, Madam Speaker. Chief Minister, what effects are the massive cuts imposed by the federal Liberal government in 2014 having on Australia's health and education systems?

MADAM SPEAKER: Could you read the question again for me, please. Can you read the question as you read it before, Mr Hinder?
