• types of services provided.
Mr Hargreaves: The answer to the member’s question is as follows:
In response to the above questions I refer you to pages 150 to 151 and pages 162 to 186 of the Urban Services Annual Report 2003-04 (copies of which have been tabled with the Chamber Support Office).
In relation to the residual information, after careful consideration of the questions, and advice provided by my Department, I have determined that the information sought is not in an easily retrievable form, and that to collect and assemble the information sought solely for the purpose of answering the question would be a major task, requiring a considerable diversion of resources. In this instance, I do not believe that it would be appropriate to divert resources from the provision of direct services to clients, for the purposes of answering the Member’s question.
