Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2018 Week 9 Hansard (23 August) . . Page.. 3593 ..


Ms Fitzharris: The answer to the member's question is as follows:

(1 - 8) I have been advised by my Directorate that the information sought is not in an easily retrievable form, and that to collect and assemble the information sought solely for the purpose of answering the question would require a considerable diversion of resources. In this instance, I do not believe that it would be appropriate to divert resources from other priority activities for the purposes of answering the Member's question. However, I offer the member a verbal briefing to discuss their questions.
