MR CAIN: Minister, when will you know whether this program is going to be continued or not and, if not, what program are you going to provide for at-risk young people?
MS DAVIDSON: Thank you for the question. Given that we are currently considering the service response to raising the minimum age of criminal responsibility, as well as a number of service initiatives that are ongoing through the Next Steps for Our Kids program, which Minister Stephen-Smith was talking about, both last week and in the papers that she tabled yesterday, there is quite a lot of work going on across a number of different programs to look at how we can better support young people and their families to have good outcomes, to be healthy and to engage in healthy behaviours. The Functional Family Therapy program is just one of a number of different programs that are being considered. Decisions will be made based on the evidence that will be part of the evaluation of that program.
Mrs Kikkert: A point of order, Madam Speaker.
MADAM SPEAKER: Mrs Kikkert.
Mrs Kikkert: The question was in regard to what are the other successful programs that are available instead of Functional Family Therapy. She just mentioned the program, but she did not say what they are.
MADAM SPEAKER: She made reference to a number of other programs.
Mrs Kikkert: She didn’t say what they are.
MADAM SPEAKER: Mrs Kikkert, there is no point of order.
MS CLAY: My question is to the Minister for Housing and Suburban Development, Minister, the SLA has three land releases at Turner, Holt central and Lawson. There are different words used in different websites and sales documents, but they all make reference to all-electric connections, with no gas, and EV charging units. Can you confirm that no fossil fuel gas will be connected at the SLA’s releases at Turner Place, Holt central and the two blocks currently for sale in Lawson stage 2?
MS BERRY: Yes, I can.
MS CLAY: Can you confirm that electric vehicle charging facilities will be provided in all of these developments?
MS BERRY: I understand that that is the case, yes.
MR BRADDOCK: Minister, will all future SLA land releases require EV charging where parking is mandated, and require no new fossil fuel gas connections?
