Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2010 Week 07 Hansard (Tuesday, 29 June 2010) . . Page.. 2837 ..

I would like to pay credit to those involved with the Canberra Knights—the players, the managers and also the sponsors. In particular, of the managers, I would like to commend the general manager, John Raut; the head coach, Dave Rogina; the assistant coach, Matthew Luoma; the manager, Andrew Deans; the photographer, Guido Rozdarz; the media liaison person, Kevin Teo; the sports medicine person, Melissa Rogina; the soft tissue therapist, Danielle Hobbs; and the merchandise person, Judy Deans.

I commend all those involved in the team and I wish them all the best for their remaining games for the season.

MR SPEAKER: Thank you, Mr Coe. You will be disappointed to hear that the Canberra Knights went down 6-2 on Saturday night.


MS BURCH (Brindabella—Minister for Disability, Housing and Community Services, Minister for Children and Young People, Minister for Ageing, Minister for Multicultural Affairs and Minister for Women) 11.03): I would like to take this opportunity to provide some clarification regarding childcare numbers at the Flynn site.

Since the budget, I have said that the redevelopment of Flynn would allow for approximately 110 childcare places on site. Today, Mrs Dunne referred to an answer I had provided on 5 May and further asked if the number I had stated was for actual new places.

On the same matter, Mr Coe referred to the ministerial code of conduct which asks that ministers correct any inadvertent error at the earliest convenience.
