Answers to questions on notice
Questions Nos 945 and 946
MRS DUNNE: Under standing order 118A I seek an explanation from the Minister for Planning as to the whereabouts of the answer to my Question No 945 in relation the failed auction of Harrison Estate stage 1, which was due on 23 October. I would also like an explanation as to why I received in my office only today the answer to Question No 946, which was due on the same day.
MR CORBELL: Mr Speaker, I apologise to the member for the delay in answering those questions. I anticipate the one remaining answer that is due to her should be delivered to her later today.
Questions Nos 931 and 932
MR CORNWELL: Mr Speaker, I have two questions unanswered by the Minister for Environment-931 and 932-concerning the community update propaganda report No. 31. They were due on 23 October, Minister.
MR STANHOPE: Mr Speaker, I regret that I was not aware that I had any overdue questions from environment and I will undertake to have those questions answered as quickly as possible.
I might just say, Mr Speaker, I think it is a matter of great regret that Mr Cornwell should consider our attempts to communicate with the affected bushfire communities to be propaganda, and that he should belittle our attempts to continue to support people who lost their homes and loved ones in the bushfire. I find most appalling the claim by Mr Cornwell that we should not be supporting people who lost their homes and their loved ones in the fire. It is really quite outrageous.
Question No 997
MR SMYTH: Mr Speaker, under the same standing order, my question 997 to the Minister for Environment should have been answered on 25 October; question 1003 to the Minister for Urban Services should have been answered on 25 October; and question 1006 to the Minister for Health should have been answered on 25 October.
MR STANHOPE: I will seek a response in respect of the answer that is outstanding. I regret that, Mr Speaker.
Question No 1003
MR SMYTH: Mr Speaker, as I have just pointed out, the answer to question 1003 was due from the Minister for Urban Services on 25 October.
MR WOOD: Okay, when we can, yes.
