the national capital for this event—just another example of how the government is continuing to sponsor and support discussion and debate on issues of heritage importance.

MADAM SPEAKER: A supplementary question, Mr Coe.

MR COE: Minister, how many of the organisations you listed in answering the first question have you consulted about your proposed changes to the Heritage Act?

MR CORBELL: All of those organisations have had the opportunity to make a submission in relation to the new heritage legislation, and many of them have.

MADAM SPEAKER: A supplementary question, Dr Bourke.

DR BOURKE: Minister, as we enter our second century as a city and continue to grow, how can we ensure that our heritage is not lost?

MR CORBELL: We need to ensure that we continue to strengthen the operation and refine the operation of our heritage legislation. The government is committed to that process. It is currently considering the responses from the community consultation process to finalise the bill and to bring it to the Assembly for detailed debate.

Ms Gallagher: I ask that all further questions be placed on the notice paper.

Supplementary answers to questions without notice

Health—breast screening

Government—executive contracts

MS GALLAGHER: Mrs Jones asked me whether there was private data included in the breast screening report. My answer was correct in that no, there is not, but I did say I would check that. I can confirm there is no private data screening included in that. Because BreastScreen ACT offers a free service, I am not sure that there is a lot of private breast screening that happens just for that screening service, anyway.

Further to the tabling statement I made in the Assembly on Thursday in relation to executive contracts, I advised the Assembly that the tabling of these contracts on that day meant that there were no current executive contracts overdue for tabling. I was advised on Friday afternoon that there is one further contract which will be tabled on Thursday. I will update the Assembly on that on Thursday, but I wanted to make sure that I corrected the record.

Also, previously, prior to the audit of executive contracts, I had been advised that the time frame of non-compliance had dated back to the late 1990s. I think I have made a number of references to that in the Assembly. As of last Thursday, as a result of the audit, the oldest contract tabled was found to be from the year 2000.

Disability services—grants

MS BURCH: I did not take it on notice, but for the Assembly’s interest, 101 people who were not receiving services received funding under the ESO grants.
