MR WOOD (continuing):

of reference and arrangements for a debt review committee and the details will be announced shortly.

In developing those terms of reference Housing ACT has consulted extensively, including the following key community organisations: CARE Financial Counselling Services, Essential Services Consumer Council, ACT Shelter, Tenants Union, Welfare Rights and Legal Centre, and ACT Treasury. The terms of reference will be made available on the department's website and included in the tenants newsletter. It is intended that, initially, tenants will be referred to the debt review committee by Housing ACT managers and specialist managers, Welfare Rights and Legal Service and CARE Financial Counselling Services.

Students with disabilities

MS GALLAGHER: Yesterday in question time Ms Dundas asked me a question about the review of services to students with a disability and policy and mandatory procedures. I have had it confirmed that it is an internal review which has been completed which is, at the moment, subject to consideration by senior management. If Ms Dundas would like more information on that then I will be happy to provide what I can.

Child protection

MS GALLAGHER: Yesterday in question time Mrs Burke asked me a question in relation to the date on which I signed off the brief that I received on the 11th. Because Mrs Burke had some concerns about the sign-off date, I have a colour photocopy of the brief, which clearly indicates that I signed the brief off on 15 December 2003. I table that for the information of members.

For the information of members I also table the front of that brief, which clearly shows what the brief looks like when it is not signed. Also for the information of members I table a copy of the same brief, which arrived as a fax, with my notes of 11 December. I hope that clarifies the matter for Mrs Burke.


MR SPEAKER: For the information of members I present correspondence from the Chief Minister relating to the resolution of the Assembly of 10 December 2003 regarding the importance of government services being provided in the suburbs of Canberra.
