Additionally, in the case of water extraction from Lake Burley Griffin, the Lake Burley Griffin Management Plan produced by the National Capital Authority is considered.

ACT Ambulance Service—staffing (Question No 897)

Mrs Jones asked the Minister for Police and Emergency Services, upon notice, on 16 February 2018:

In relation to the answer to question on notice No 662, part (2), of the (a) 222 emergency ambulance shifts in 2015-16, (b) 303 emergency ambulance shifts in 2016-17 and (c) 115 emergency ambulance shifts in 2017-18 (to 6 December 2017), which fell below minimum crewing, how many emergency ambulance crews were rostered for each of these shifts.

Mr Gentleman: The answer to the member's question is as follows:

There are two ambulance shifts per day (day shift / night shift), which equates to approximately 730 shifts per year. Providing a response to this question would require each shift since 1 July 2015 to be analysed. This will take a considerable amount of staff time and resources to answer, and unreasonably redirect ACT Emergency Service Agency personnel away from important functions. As such, I have determined it is not appropriate to provide a response to this question.
