Mr Wood

: The answer to the member's question is as follows:

After careful consideration of the question, and advice provided by my Department, I have determined that the information sought is not in an easily retrievable form, and that to collect and assemble the information sought solely for the purpose of answering the question would be a major task, requiring a considerable diversion of resources. In this instance, I do not believe that it would be appropriate to divert resources from the provision of direct services to clients, for the purposes of answering the Member's question. The question requires specific details of each application at

6 monthly intervals over 5 years.

Information on Housing Stock and New Applicants by Area is available in the Department of Disability, Housing and Community Services Ownership Agreement 2003-04, and in the Ownership Agreements previously containing ACT Housing. The Member was provided a copy of the 2003-04 Ownership Agreement with the 2003-04 Budget Papers on 6 May 2003.

Honour Walk memorial

(Question No 735)

Mr Stefaniak asked the Minister for Urban Services, upon notice:

In relation to the Honour Walk and further to your reply to Question on notice no 532:

(1) Has a revised memorials policy been adopted yet, if so, please provide a copy or outline the details in the new policy, if not, why not and when will it be finalised.

(2) What will or has happened to the $24,000 outstanding authorisation for the Honour Walk.

Mr Wood

: The answer to the member's questions is as follows:

(1) No. The memorials policy is still being finalised. The delay was caused by priority being given to bushfire recovery tasks, with completion now expected by September 2003. The policy will be released publicly at that time, with a copy provided to all MLA's.

(2) The Honour Walk capital expenditure has been spent except for $23, 824, which remained unspent at the conclusion of the 2002-03 financial year. This amount remains available for this purpose during the current 2003-04 financial year.
