Questions without notice


MR SESELJA: My question is to the Minister for Education and Training. Minister, in respect of the recent reported incident involving a student at a Canberra high school and the involvement of a weapon, on what date did you first become aware that a police investigation was to be undertaken?

MR SESELJA: Minister, on what date was the police investigation completed?

DR BOURKE: That was on 14 February.

MR SPEAKER: A supplementary, Mr Doszpot.

MR DOSZPOT: Minister, on what date were you advised of the outcome of that investigation?

DR BOURKE: I have received a number of updates on this particular incident. I do not have the exact date of that notification to hand, but I will inquire and report back shortly.

MR SPEAKER: Supplementary, Mr Doszpot.

MR DOSZPOT: Minister, were you satisfied with the outcome?

DR BOURKE: I was satisfied with the outcome of the directorate’s handling of this matter.
