Legislative Assembly for the ACT: Week 5 Hansard (4 May) . . Page.. 1756..
Question Nos 1291 and 1474
MR CORNWELL: Mr Speaker, under standing order 118A(a), I have two matters for the Minister for Planning: questions 1291 and 1474.
MR CORBELL: I will undertake to find out the reasons for that delay, and I will get those answers to Mr Cornwell very shortly.
Question No 1407
MRS BURKE: Mr Speaker, under standing order 118A (a), question 1407 to the Minister for Planning in his capacity as family services minister at the time, regarding advice given to him by the OCA, was due on 10 April.
MR CORBELL: Mr Speaker, I am advised that that question is out of order. I cannot answer a question about an area for which I am no longer the responsible minister.
MR SPEAKER: It can only be directed to the responsible minister, and only the responsible minister can answer it. Mrs Burke, you may have to take it up by another means.
MRS BURKE: That was the advice I was given, Mr Speaker.
MR SPEAKER: All I can suggest to you is that you contact the office of the Clerk, discuss the matter there and work out what you want to do in due course.
Motion (by Mr Wood ) agreed to:
That the Assembly do now adjourn.
The Assembly adjourned at 3.57 pm.
