currently out for consultation through my colleague Minister Burch’s Community Services Directorate. Draft variation 309 was intended to introduce the RZ2 provisions. Because of changes as result of draft variation 303, if I recall correctly—

Mrs Dunne: No, 306

MR CORBELL: I beg your pardon, it is 306 now but it was 303—and 301. These provisions are now included in draft variation 306.

Education, Training and Youth Affairs—Standing Committee

Statement by member

MRS DUNNE (Ginninderra): Mr Speaker, I seek leave to make a brief statement in relation to the debate this morning on the reference to the education, training and youth affairs committee.

Mr Hargreaves: That is what the adjournment debate is for.

Leave granted.

MRS DUNNE: I did contemplate using the adjournment debate but I think that this is such an urgent matter that it should be dealt with now. During the debate this morning, Ms Burch said in relation to children at the youth detention centre:

Whilst we need to make the right investments, and good investments, in the detention centre, in many ways we have missed the boat for these vulnerable young people when we are concentrating on the detention area.

I think that this is an entirely inappropriate comment for a minister to make and I think the minister should withdraw the comments and dissociate herself from those comments.
