Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2006 Week 1 Hansard (16 February) . . Page.. 280..


MR PRATT (continuing):

I would not want to think that the government seeks to conceal these hard issues about our bushfire fighting capability and preventive planning capabilities, and I would not want to think that this government would conceal issues that we have asked about-touchy questions about evacuation policy, evacuation management policy, and other such things-all of which start to give the opposition a little bit of concern, a bit of a slide in our confidence, about this government's capability with emergency management in general, the bushfire management threat and the counterterrorist management threat.

We will be pursuing this issue. I put on the record here today that we clearly have a very poor response on a very, very serious FOI request-not a flippant one-which goes to the heart of serious questions about our emergency management planning.

The Assembly adjourned at 6.27 pm until Tuesday, 7 March 2006, at 10.30 am.
