Tuesday, 14 August 1990


MR ACTING SPEAKER (Mr Stefaniak) took the chair at 2.30 pm and read the prayer.


The Clerk: The following petition has been lodged for presentation, and a copy will be referred to the appropriate Minister.

Therapy Centre

To the Speaker and members of the Legislative Assembly of the A.C.T. - in government assembled.

The petition of the undersigned respectfully request that you take urgent action to address the issue of the ongoing accommodation for Therapy Centre, Early Intervention Service which is currently located in the old South Curtin Primary School Building which provides an appropriate community setting for this essential service. We are very concerned that any disruption to the service will disadvantage the children.

Your petitioners humbly pray that your honourable assembly ensure urgent action is carried out to ensure the continuity of this service in an appropriate setting.

By Mr Humphries (from 445 citizens).

Petition received.


School Closures - Savings

MS FOLLETT: My question is to Mr Humphries, the Minister for Education. Mr Humphries, Dr Frances Perkins has provided a detailed estimate of savings on the closure of seven schools which are actually based on the Treasury assumptions. She estimates that the closure of seven schools would cost approximately quarter of a million dollars and that is, as I say, based on Treasury's own figures. My question is: on the basis of which particular figures in her brochure do you assert that Dr Perkins' figures are wrong?
