Answers to questions on notice

Question Nos 805, 830, 833 and 835

MS CASTLEY: Under standing order 118A, I have a few overdue questions on notice. I would like to get statements as to why they are late.

MADAM SPEAKER: Can you direct them to the minister, with the question numbers?

MS CASTLEY: Certainly. Question 805 to the health minister, and questions 830, 833 and 835 to the health minister and the mental health minister.

MS STEPHEN-SMITH: I can advise Ms Castley that, in relation to question 805, we are awaiting input from Calvary Public Hospital to complete the response to that very detailed question.

In relation to 833, which is another extremely detailed question from Ms Castley, we are again awaiting input from Calvary Public Hospital. In relation to question 835, a draft has been received in my office, but I found it confusing. So I returned it for further clarification so that the answer that I respond with can be understood by any person in this chamber.

MADAM SPEAKER: Are there other answers to questions that are delayed?

MS CASTLEY: I am wondering how long it will take Calvary to answer. Can we get an estimated time?

MADAM SPEAKER: No, I think she has responded. That is the result; she is awaiting information from Calvary.

MS CASTLEY: The answer from the mental health minister is to question 830. We received the other two; thank you.

MS DAVIDSON: For that particular question, we are waiting on some details from Calvary, and we will send it through as soon as we receive those details.

MADAM SPEAKER: Both ministers’ offices are alerted to the need to get information back from Calvary, Ms Castley.
