TIMBER INDUSTRY

Ms Horodny: I seek leave to make a very quick conclusion to my woodchip motion.

Mr Berry: We have done it.

Ms Horodny: I was unable to stand up at the appropriate moment because I misunderstood the process with voting.

MR SPEAKER: It is a matter for the Assembly to decide. Ms Horodny is seeking leave. I will leave it to the Assembly. Is leave granted?

Mr Berry: Do it in the adjournment debate tonight.

Ms Horodny: Could I draw your attention to standing order 47, Mr Speaker.

Mr Moore: If it is an explanation under standing order 47, that is all right. That is the Speaker's prerogative, under standing order 47.

MR SPEAKER: The Acting Clerk advises me that standing order 47 applies when we are still debating the matter. We are not debating it now. It is possible to do it in the adjournment debate, Ms Horodny.

Sitting suspended from 12.30 to 2.30 pm

QUESTIONS WITHOUT NOTICE

Labour Market Programs

MS FOLLETT: Mr Speaker, I direct a question to Mr De Domenico in his capacity as Minister for Business, Employment and Tourism. Can the Minister confirm that the following labour market programs have been terminated: ACT Jobskills, which is designed to give on- and off-the-job training to people over 21 years old who have been unemployed over a long period; the women's work force development scheme, which offers on- and off-the-job training for women who have been out of the paid work force, usually for a period of many years; Youth Joblink, which was a government sponsored program run by the Chamber of Commerce to match up young people with jobs in the private sector and monitor them and mentor them afterwards; and the venture and development assistance program, which was a program giving seeding grants mainly to young people to start up in their own business? Have you terminated those four programs?
