Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 1995 Week 7 Hansard (19 October) . . Page.. 1879..
MR STEFANIAK: Mr Speaker, might I now attempt to answer a question Ms Tucker asked earlier? In relation to your question, Ms Tucker, I point out that in 1996 there will be nine senior policy officers headed by a principal to work on curriculum matters encompassing all eight key learning areas. In addition, there will be a principal and three other senior personnel who will focus on outcomes of reporting. Accordingly, the department is working on the appropriate structure for next year. I am confident that the key learning area of studies of society and environment will be looked after effectively.
MR DE DOMENICO: Mr Speaker, yesterday Ms Follett asked me a question regarding certain employment programs which I undertook to answer, and I now table the answer for Ms Follett.
MR DE DOMENICO: Mr Wood, earlier in question time, or Mr Berry, asked me for the costs to be incurred by the Government in putting on the taxi plate auction. I am advised that it is going to cost the Government $118 to hire the Albert Hall and the total cost of the advertising was $2,000.
MR SPEAKER: Ms Tucker, did you have a request?
Ms Tucker: Yes, I wanted to ask a supplementary question.
MR SPEAKER: I am sorry; question time is over.
Ms Tucker: Standing order 119 says:
Immediately following the oral answer to a question, one supplementary question may be asked by the Member ...
I was under the impression that I could do that.
MR SPEAKER: The Chief Minister has closed question time, however. Put it on the notice paper.
Ms Tucker: So standing order 119 does not stand.
