Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2016 Week 6 Hansard (9 June) . .
the business but, if necessary, consideration should be given as to how they might go outside that and use the public interest disclosure policy. It is taxpayers' money. It is being spent through the contracting processes of the government; so we need to make sure that all is done according to Hoyle.
I will finish by thanking my colleagues, Ms Joy Burch, Ms Nicole Lawder and Mr Jason Hinder for their assistance in doing this expeditiously, getting ahead of the game and putting out a report before the government had even commented. With that, we would, as always, thank Dr Andrea Cullen for her support to the committee. She is an excellent secretary and we thank her for her efforts.
Question resolved in the affirmative.
Sitting suspended from 12.29 to 2.30 pm.
Questions without notice
Canberra Hospital—bed occupancy rates
MR HANSON: My question is to the Minister for Health. Minister, in the week beginning 1 June 2016 was the Canberra Hospital subject to a code yellow?
MR CORBELL: I will need to take the question on notice. The Canberra Hospital is subject to a range of code alerts throughout the year, so I will need to ascertain some further information from the Canberra Hospital.
MADAM SPEAKER: A supplementary question, Mr Hanson.
MR HANSON: Minister, during the same week was the chest pain clinic closed for new admissions?
MR CORBELL: I will take the question on notice.
MADAM SPEAKER: Supplementary question,
MRS JONES: Minister, during the same week were any other wards closed for new admissions?
MR CORBELL: Not that I am aware of. Indeed, I am not aware whether the claim made by Mr Hanson is accurate or not. That is why I will take that and the specifics of Mrs Jones's question also on notice.
MADAM SPEAKER: A supplementary question, Mrs Jones.
MRS JONES: Minister, during the same week did the bed occupancy rate exceed 100 per cent?
MR CORBELL: It is not clear to me whether Mrs Jones is asking over the entire period of the week or any one instance during the week, but I am very happy to provide further details to her.
