Civic Youth Centre

MS TUCKER: My question is to Mr Stefaniak, and I think that he has had some notice of it. Care Action, St John's Church, Reid, the Red Cross, the Hare Krishnas, the Freemasons and the Civic Youth Centre provide meals to the homeless and hungry on a rotational basis every night of the week. They currently do so at the Civic Youth Centre, which is a resource specifically for those under 25 years of age. I think that you are aware that the Civic Youth Centre no longer will be able to provide meals to those over 25 years of age; so, my question is: What provisions are in place to provide a new venue to the other organisations to feed those people?
