Ministerial arrangements

MR STANHOPE (Ginninderra—Chief Minister, Minister for Transport, Minister for Territory and Municipal Services, Minister for Business and Economic Development, Minister for Indigenous Affairs and Minister for the Arts and Heritage): The Minister for Disability, Housing and Community Services, Mr Hargreaves, is at a ministerial council today and is unable to attend. I will be happy to take any questions anybody may have in relation to Corrections. If there are any questions in relation to disability and community services, the Deputy Chief Minister will be happy to seek to be of assistance. I am sure members would understand that we may have some difficulty and we may have to take questions on notice but we will seek to assist.
