Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 1995 Week 10 Hansard (6 December) . . Page.. 2725 ..

MS HORODNY: I have a supplementary question, Mr Speaker. Given that the Minister has been aware of this for nearly two months, why has he failed to take action to resolve the issue?

MR DE DOMENICO: I am glad that you asked that question, Ms Horodny, because members of the Greens party talk about community consultation. You have to realise that community consultation takes time.

Mr Osborne: Three years?

MR DE DOMENICO: No; not three years, as Mr Osborne interjected. Mr Osborne has not been here for three years and would not know. What I can say to you, Ms Horodny, is that there have been two areas of disagreement. We nearly had a unanimous agreement, except for the fact that the gentleman representing RORE agreed, went back home and came back and had changed his mind. What I am going to do, and what the Government is going to do - - -

Mr Berry: Get stuck into him in the chamber, the coward's castle.

MR DE DOMENICO: No; I am not going to get stuck into anyone, Mr Berry. Perhaps I will get stuck into you later. The Government, Ms Horodny, will make sure that the majority view is taken into account. However, to give everybody a last opportunity to come up with a unanimous report, I will meet with that group very shortly. I will have an answer by the end of the year.

MR WHITECROSS: My question is directed to Mr Stefaniak, the Minister for Education and Training.

Mr Moore: "Who knows?".

MR WHITECROSS: Should I sit down now?

MR SPEAKER: Settle down, Mr Moore.

MR WHITECROSS: Thank you, Mr Speaker. I think that Mr Moore was helping Mr Stefaniak out with his answer.

Mr Moore: You do not have a clue, Bill. "Who knows?".

MR WHITECROSS: You have not heard the question and already you know what the answer is.
