Legislative Assembly for the ACT: Week 5 Hansard (14 May) . . Page.. 2023..

MR SMYTH: Mr Speaker, through you, I point out to Mr Corbell that answers to question Nos 1460, 1461 and 1462 are all overdue. They were due on 1 May and relate to mental health issues. I was wondering whether the minister could explain why they are overdue and when I might expect an answer.

MR CORBELL: Mr Speaker, I signed off the answers for Mr Smyth today in relation to those questions and, if they are not already in his office, they should be soon. I apologise.

Question No 1407

MRS BURKE: I seek leave to do likewise, Mr Speaker.

Leave granted.

MRS BURKE: I refer to question No 1407. I believe that it has been referred from minister to minister and I understand that it is now back with Minister Corbell. I am wondering why I have not yet received a response.

Mr Corbell: What is the subject matter of the question?

MRS BURKE: It is about the Office of the Community Advocate at a time when you were the minister responsible. It has been referred backwards and forwards.

MR CORBELL: I have already answered this question in response to a previous point that Mrs Burke raised. I am advised by the Clerk that the question she has asked is out of order and I am not in a position to answer it because it is out of order. I advised the Assembly of that when Mrs Burke raised the issue earlier.

Mrs Burke: It is still on the notice paper and that is not the advice I have been given, Mr Speaker.

MR SPEAKER: That is about where it stands at the moment.

Question No 1474

MR CORNELL: Mr Speaker, I seek leave to raise a matter under the same standing order.

Leave granted.

MR CORNWELL: I refer to question No 1474 to the Minister for Planning regarding a review about extending pensioner off-peak concessions. It was about whether the outcome of this review would be made available to members of the Assembly.

MR CORBELL: Mr Speaker, I apologise to Mr Cornwell. That answer has been in my office and it should be with the member shortly.
