Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2003 Week 5 Hansard (7 May) . . Page.. 1642 ..


MR SMYTH: On 18 February, when Mr Stanhope took a question on notice, he said:

I am happy to provide a chronology in relation to all four fires, to the extent that it is available.

That was on 18 February and I am yet to receive that chronology.

MR SPEAKER: Yes, I confirm that the request must be from the member who asked the question.

MR STANHOPE: I want to respond-simply to acknowledge the outstanding questions.

In relation to the chronology, no chronology was available. I regret that I did not make that explicitly clear to the Leader of the Opposition earlier, Mr Speaker. However, I propose to table tomorrow all ACT government departmental submissions from the bushfire inquiry. That will contain full details of all matters in relation to the bushfires and the chronology, to the extent that one exists.

MR SMYTH: On 19 February-the following day-Mr Stanhope took another question on notice. He said:

I cannot tell you at what time the police first raised the issue of a state of emergency with the Emergency Services Bureau, but I am happy to take that on notice.

I do not believe I have received an answer to that question, either.

MR CORBELL: Mr Speaker, I apologise to Mr Smyth. As he acknowledges, for the sake of the record, I wrote to Mr Smyth earlier this week, advising him that those questions are overdue but will be responded to shortly.
