Page.. 963..

WorkSafe is investigating the matter to determine whether Milin Bros acted lawfully in denying entry to the CFMEU under the WHS Act.

Minister, will you confirm that both the CFMEU and Milin Bros were investigated by WorkSafe ACT in relation to this matter?

MR GENTLEMAN: I would have to take that on notice. I do not have the detail in front of me.

MADAM SPEAKER: A supplementary question, Mr Wall.

MR WALL: Minister, what recommendations, if any, were made to government in light of the investigation of this conduct?

MR GENTLEMAN: Again I do not have the detail in front of me, so I will take that on notice.

MADAM SPEAKER: A supplementary question, Mr Doszpot.

MR DOSZPOT: Minister, were there any changes to WorkSafe ACT policy as a result of these investigations?

MR GENTLEMAN: There has been no change as far as I have been advised. As I said, I will take those earlier questions on notice and come back with the details.

MADAM SPEAKER: A supplementary question, Mr Doszpot.

MR DOSZPOT: Minister, what advice have you received in relation to this investigation?

MR GENTLEMAN: Only the advice that I described to the chamber in my previous answers.

Disability services—Therapy ACT

MRS JONES: My question is to the Minister for Disability. Minister, in the last sitting week you said you could not provide any guarantees that no child would be worse off as a result of the closure of Therapy ACT at the end of this year. You have also said that Therapy ACT is supporting the transition of clients to non-government organisations. Minister, will you now guarantee that there will be adequate services available for existing and future clients of Therapy ACT, in particular those under school age post December 2016?

DR BOURKE: I thank the member for her question. Of course, what I talked about in the last week, when I got up after question time to tell the house more, was the child development service, which will be a continued service that will be provided after the closure of the NDIS. It will enable parents to take their child along for assessment and also will provide some therapy and assistance to enable them to deal with the many short-term problems that young children have and that parents want advice and support on, to be able to get them back into an appropriate space.
