MR SMYTH: A supplementary, Mr Speaker.
MR SPEAKER: One moment, I am hearing Mr Stanhope.
Mr Stanhope: He has had his question.
Mr Smyth: A question consists of two parts and two supplementaries, Chief Minister. You should check your standing orders.
Mr Corbell: He can move to close question time after all non-executive members have asked a question.
MR SPEAKER: We seem to be in an unprecedented situation for which the standing orders appear to provide no clear answer. I think that, given Mr Smyth has asked his question, he is entitled to a supplementary. Then I will take your request, Chief Minister. I will not be inviting additional supplementaries. I will just have Mr Smyth’s.
MR SMYTH: Minister, what consultation took place with the John Flynn group about the government’s intention that the childcare services at Flynn would be provided by a community-based provider and when did that consultation take place?
MS BURCH: Again, I refer to that last conversation where we both agreed that having a community provider on site was probably the optimal way to go. But given that the process was still in train and no determination was made, I could not confirm one way or another on that date. But certainly we were in mutual agreement that a community provider would have been a good outcome.
Mr Hargreaves: A supplementary?
MR SPEAKER: No, we are not having any further supplementaries, Mr Hargreaves.
Mr Stanhope: I ask that all further questions be placed on the notice paper.
