Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2006 Week 6 Hansard (7 June) . . Page.. 1848..

MR BARR: I may have signed that answer at lunchtime, so it will be with Mr Smyth later today.

Question No 1095

MR SMYTH: I wait with bated breath. I have a second one. It is to the Treasurer. It is question 1095, re regular reporting to the Treasurer. It expired on 3 June. I was wondering whether the Treasurer had an explanation as to why that question has not been answered within the time frame.

MR STANHOPE: Similarly, Mr Smyth, I believe I signed that response yesterday, but I would have to crosscheck the number. I do not have an explanation, other than pressure of work-it was somewhere within the system-perhaps to do with the production of the budget. But I apologise for any delay or inconvenience that may have been caused and will pursue the matter. I believe I signed it yesterday.

Statement by minister
