a) Why are these numbers, at 67, down from the 144 staff quoted by you(a) in your newsletter to Gungahlin residents 'Delivering for Gungahlin' late last year;
b) Was the balance of 77 staff sacked, and if not why was the 144 staff figure originally quoted.
Note: (a) The newsletter referred to was distributed by the Planning Minister, Mr Corbell.
Mr Quinlan: The answers to the Members' questions are as follows:
a) The Government was advised by ACTTAB that the number of staff employed at the Dickson Head office was 144, and comprised 33 permanent staff and 111 casual staff. These figures were used by Mr Corbell as the basis for his newsletter.
ACTTAB now advises that the figure for casual staff previously advised included all casual staff employed by ACTTAB across Canberra, not just those at the Dickson Head Office.
The figures I included in my response to Question on Notice 377, which includes 32 casual staff at the Head Office, have been confirmed by ACTTAB as being correct.
b) As above
