MR STEFANIAK (continuing):
The removal of the structure, Mr Speaker, was apparently complicated by the fact that the job took more time than originally estimated, and was further complicated when scavenging took place overnight on 1 November 1995. This meant that small pieces of sheeting material, in particular, were spread around the site. The contractor was subsequently called back by the department to carry out a further check of the site, as a few small pieces of sheeting had been discovered in the grounds. A further check was made by the department, only to discover that some small pieces of sheeting still remained. The contractor was again contacted and the site cleared.
There was no requirement by the department to contact the Department of Urban Services, as the job was small and outside. Furthermore, an experienced contractor was employed. The sheeting material from the structure was removed from the site, I am advised, on 1 November, and the remaining timber and other material was removed on 2 November. The contractor was also asked to revisit the site to ensure that all material had been removed. My department continues to liaise with the contractor to ensure that proper removal procedures were followed for clearance of the site. My department is also liaising with the Pre-School Association regarding alternative ways of providing additional storage for the unit.
MRS CARNELL: I table the answer to the question asked by Mr Osborne yesterday with regard to the salary package for the position of Chief Executive in the Chief Minister's Department, and seek leave to have it incorporated in Hansard.

MR DE DOMENICO: Mr Speaker, I would like to table the answer to a question that Mr Connolly asked me yesterday about the cost of the Houlihan consultancy and the terms of reference. I seek leave to have the answer incorporated in Hansard.
