Throsby home of football. This $33.5 million investment in a new facility in Canberra's north will support a range of community and high-performance programs for capital football.

One final project I want to mention is the new ice sport facility proposal for Tuggeranong. I know members are very interested in this development and I look forward to the delivery of this project. I can advise the Assembly that a proposal has been received and is being considered by the government and I hope to be able to share more news on this project soon. I look forward to the delivery of these important projects and a different approach when it comes to investments in Canberra from the Albanese-Labor government.

Mr Barr: Further questions can be placed on the notice paper.

Answers to questions on notice

Question Nos 771 and 776

MS CASTLEY: Yesterday I raised a couple of questions that were outstanding. A few of the responses from the ministers was that they were just waiting on the signatures to come across. I am just raising the fact that they are still late—771 with Minister Stephen-Smith, and 776 with Minister Berry. Three questions came in.

MS STEPHEN-SMITH: I have signed the other ones that were with me for review. In relation to 771, I had a question about some of the information that was provided in the draft response. I just want to make sure that we have got that 100 per cent right before I sign it off.

MS BERRY: In relation to 776, I am confident that I have signed the question on notice. But I will check after question time just to be sure that it is on its way to Ms Castley’s office.

Supplementary answer to question without notice

Canberra Hospital—safety

MS STEPHEN-SMITH: Yesterday Ms Castley asked Minister Gentleman whether an improvement notice from WorkSafe ACT had been issued to the Canberra Hospital emergency department. I can advise the chamber that a WorkSafe ACT improvement notice has not been issued to the Canberra Hospital emergency department at this time.

Mr Parton interjecting—

MS STEPHEN-SMITH: Canberra Health Services, as I indicated yesterday, is working with WorkSafe ACT to ensure its processes in the emergency department are supporting a safe work environment for staff. WorkSafe ACT last visited the emergency department on 9 May and Canberra Health Services has subsequently provided information to WorkSafe ACT that is being reviewed.

Yes, Mr Parton, I did acknowledge yesterday that WorkSafe ACT had been visiting the emergency department and that there were ongoing conversations underway, and we very much value the role of WorkSafe ACT in this matter.
