Answers to questions on notice
Nos 30 and 131
MR CORBELL: Mr Speaker, with your indulgence, I just want to make a brief statement in relation to overdue questions on notice. Mrs Dunne asked in the Assembly yesterday about a number of questions on notice that are overdue. I just want to clarify and correct my comments on two of those questions. I indicated to Mrs Dunne that all those questions had been cleared by my office. I apologise for that; in fact two are still outstanding. Those are question on notice No 30, in relation to unpaid traffic and parking fines, and question on notice No 131 regarding breaches of model litigant guidelines.
In relation to question on notice No 30, that question involves information to be obtained from the Department of Territory and Municipal Services. This is proving to take longer than expected, but I have asked my office to expedite the matter. In relation to question on notice No 131, that matter is a complex question and is still with GSO for action. I have asked the Government Solicitor’s office to expedite the answer. I apologise for any misunderstanding in relation to those matters.
