Cleaning contracts

Statement by minister

MS GALLAGHER (Minister for Education and Training, Minister for Children, Youth and Family Support, Minister for Women and Minister for Industrial Relations) (10.31): I seek leave to make a statement.

Leave granted.

MS GALLAGHER: On Thursday 5 August 2004, during my response to an answer to a question on the contract cleaning long service leave fund, I made the following statement:

The former directors of Endoxos have also been informed of the board's decision but they have not made any comment.

Subsequent to making that statement I have been advised that the former directors were formally notified on 5 August, following that question, although there had been correspondence prior to that date. My comments were based on advice given to me by the contract cleaning industry long service leave fund and from the Office of Industrial Relations. I table that advice in order to have that correction noted by the Assembly.
