Behavioural Management Unit - Relocation

MR MOORE: Mr Speaker, my question is directed to Mr Humphries as Minister for Education. Mr Humphries, the Theodore Street behavioural unit was located at the South Curtin Primary School and, of course, is no longer there. Considering that you have given guarantees of continuance of that particular program in this house, can you tell us where it is located and how it is operating in a way that does not have an impact on any other primary school, or on the primary school children?

MR HUMPHRIES: Mr Speaker, I am not aware of where the Theodore Street unit is to be located; but I have indicated already in answer to questions last year from Mr Moore and, I think, Mr Wood and others - - -

Mr Wood: You would be better off informing yourself on that than on that last nonsense thing you raised.


Mr Wood: Get on top of your job for a change.

MR HUMPHRIES: I can see that Mr Wood is a bit touchy on this subject. I wonder why he is a bit touchy on this subject. I do not suppose No. 202-054 belonged to Mr Wood, did it?

Mr Wood: No, it does not. It belongs to the ACT Assembly.

MR HUMPHRIES: I am pleased to see that.

Mr Wood: Once again you cannot get anything right.

MR SPEAKER: Order, Mr Wood!

Mr Wood: From day one here you have got everything wrong.

MR SPEAKER: Mr Wood, please!

MR HUMPHRIES: It is a great pity, Mr Speaker, that some other people did not take holidays over the last few weeks as well as some Ministers.

Mr Speaker, I will take Mr Moore's question on notice. I have no reason to believe that my advice will be any different from last year, but I do think that he need not concern himself or worry about the dismemberment of that unit or of any adverse location of it.
