Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2019 Week 8 Hansard (15 August) . . Page.. 3017 ..
the position description was undertaken to ensure that it reflected recent changes in the role, the transition to two agencies and structure for the directorate.
A thorough process to contract a recruitment agency was undertaken and the successful agency was contracted in July 2019. The recruitment agency has commenced their executive search and the position has been advertised on the agency's website. The position will also be advertised on ACT government sites before the end of next week.
This is of course a highly specialised and technical leadership role within the ACT public health system. As a result, the directorate has taken time to ensure that processes are thorough to ensure that we can recruit the best possible candidate to this position.
Use of titles of respect
MADAM SPEAKER: Are there other matters arising from question time?
MRS JONES: Yes, Madam Speaker. During question time today a member opposite referred to my colleague as "Ms C Burch". The member's preferred prenominal is "Miss"—Miss Burch—except during votes and similar proceedings when we realise that in order to differentiate from Ms J Burch such an unusual term of reference is used. For absolute clarity, the preferred prenominal is "Miss"—Miss Burch.
MADAM SPEAKER: Thank you for that update, Mrs Jones.

MR PARTON (Brindabella) (3.07): I was not going to speak on this section of the appropriation debate. We were going to leave all our comments pertaining to building quality until the planning section. But after hearing the words from my friend, Mr Ramsay, I just felt the need to respond in particular to the additional spending in the area of building quality and enforcement. I pay tribute to Mr Ramsay in that I think his heart is in the right place. I have known Mr Ramsay for a long time, and I think he is a good man. I think he has a genuine will in this space, much more so
