Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2006 Week 12 Hansard (23 November) . . Page.. 3865..

MR HARGREAVES (continuing):

We are working with those people on that. I table the letter to Aerial Consolidated Transport.

Public housing—access to services

DR FOSKEY: Mr Speaker, my question concerns access to services for people living in multiunit public housing blocks.

Mr Hargreaves: Who is it to?

DR FOSKEY: To you, I expect.

Mr Hargreaves: You will have to tell somebody.

DR FOSKEY: Could the minister for housing please advise the Assembly whether there are emergency procedures in place so that if a fire or an incident that requires evacuation occurs, frail and vulnerable residents will know where to go and who will look after them.

MR HARGREAVES: It is my understanding that all of our multiunit complexes comply with the fire provisions of the Building Code of Australia.

DR FOSKEY: Do those residents also have access to waste recycling? If not, when is it likely that such services will be provided?

MR HARGREAVES: That supplementary question does not apply to the original question.

DR FOSKEY: My question was about services for people living in multiunit public housing blocks.

MR SPEAKER: The minister has concluded his answer.

DR FOSKEY: I have a supplementary, then.

MR SPEAKER: You have already had it. That was it.

DR FOSKEY: If you have ruled that one out, I am, of course, prepared—

MR HARGREAVES: I will attempt to answer that bit.

MR SPEAKER: Order! Sit down for a minute, Mr Hargreaves, please. You had a question and a supplementary question. Mr Hargreaves answered both. There endeth the exercise as far as questions are concerned.

DR FOSKEY: That supplementary was ruled out of order.

MR SPEAKER: No, it was not.

DR FOSKEY: Mr Hargreaves said it was out of order.
