Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2018 Week 13 Hansard (28 November) . . Page.. 4964 ..


Strait Islander people can be proud of their identity and access further education will lead to better outcomes for the entire community, and I look forward to following the progress of future grant recipients.

Waste—bulk collection

MR MILLIGAN: My question is to the Minister for City Services. Minister, there was an election promise made during the 2016 election campaign that a free bulk waste collection would be rolled out to all Canberra suburbs. When is that to be introduced?

When I asked what happens when the same thing happens a second time, the answer was the same. When I asked what happens when the same thing happens a third time, the answer was: "Well, it is the same scenario." Minister, despite the managing occupational violence policy having been in place since July 2017, and the findings of the WorkSafe investigation,
