Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2018 Week 09 Hansard (Thursday, 23 August 2018) . . Page.. 3555 ..
MADAM SPEAKER: Mr Coe.
MR COE: Earlier today, during question time, I asked the Chief Minister some questions about the Hands Across Canberra deed. Either in interjection or in response to those questions, Mr Barr said that the deed had been provided to the select committee on estimates and that I was not across what had been provided to that committee. I believe this is wrong. I believe the deed was not provided. I ask that Mr Barr either correct the record or, better still, provide us with the deed.
MR BARR (Kurrajong—Chief Minister, Treasurer, Minister for Economic Development and Minister for Tourism and Major Events) (3.28): Madam Speaker, the deed is available on the Chief Minister, Treasury and Economic Development website under “Chief Minister’s charitable trust”. It has been on the website for some time, Madam Speaker.
Supplementary answer to question without notice
MS BERRY: In relation to a question that I got from Ms Lee last week regarding funding for students with disabilities, I want to confirm the ACT government’s commitment of $23.2 million, which provides needs-based funding for students with a disability, adjusted for growth in the number of students with a disability in ACT public schools. It also includes a component of funding to support students with complex health needs through the continuation of the health care access at school program.
Needs-based funding for students with a disability is based on the student-centred appraisal of need approach, noting that work towards national consistency in this, under the nationally consistent collection of data approach, is continuing.
Leave of absence
Motion (by Mr Gentleman) agreed to:
That leave of absence be granted to Ms Orr for today’s sitting due to illness.
