MR BARR: I am aware that I have dozens of questions from the opposition. I believe I have answered all of them but this one. I believe the answer to this will be supplied today or tomorrow. The reason for the delay is that today is budget day. I have been somewhat busy on many other things over the past few weeks. I have sought to answer nearly every question that has come forward. I apologise, Ms Castley, that this one did not meet the deadline, but I understand that I will have an answer to you very shortly.
MS CASTLEY: I also ask about a question to the Minister for Mental Health, No 1160.
MS DAVIDSON: I am just checking which question that is. I will find out where that question is and get an answer back to you later today.
Questions 1139, 1140, 1176 and 1179
MS CASTLEY: For the Minister for Health, there are questions 1139, 1140 and 1179. I note that I got an answer to 1181 referring me, as a non-answer, to 1176, which I also do not have. I have one but not the other.
MS STEPHEN-SMITH: I was wondering about 1176 because I was under the impression that I had signed it; but these things do go through a quality assurance process, and I am told it is awaiting some further information. I apologise for the mis-ordering of those. I can advise Ms Castley that I have signed the response to 1139. I have a number of others here that were on the notice paper, and I cannot remember which ones Ms Castley referred to. The ones I have not signed are 1179, which I understand was redirected to Minister Davidson; 1176, which we have just talked about; and 1140, which has not yet been received from the directorate. This relates to the Calvary Public Hospital Bruce-North Canberra Hospital transition. Obviously, the transition team have been very busy managing that transition.
Supplementary answer to question without notice
Acton—proposed fire station
MR GENTLEMAN: In relation to Mr Milligan’s question on the cost of the Acton station, I can advise that $45 million in funding for the design and construction of the Acton station was announced in August 2020.
Madam Speaker presented the following papers:
