the annual report hearings and I refer the member to the Hansard report of those hearings.

Planning—west Greenway

MR GENTLEMAN: Yesterday Ms Lawder asked a question about the evaluation report for western Greenway. She reiterated that request later on in the day. As mentioned, I can advise that the report is up on the your say website. You can find it at

ACT Health data

Order to table documents

MRS DUNNE (Ginninderra) (3.30): Madam Speaker, if matters arising from question time have finished, I have a matter I wish to raise. I move:

That, in accordance with standing order 213A(1), the Minister for Health table, by close of business today:

(1) the letter from the Director-General of the Health Directorate to the Auditor-General about health data issues of 8 September 2016; and

(2) any briefing to the former Minister for Health or the Minister for Health about this letter and the associated data issues.

MS FITZHARRIS (Yerrabi—Minister for Health, Minister for Transport and City Services and Minister for Higher Education, Training and Research) (3.31): Madam Speaker, I seek your guidance. I have not had a chance to return to my office to seek advice. I do not believe there is an issue with the letter. Certainly, in terms of previous briefings to previous ministers, there may be a number and it may take more time to look through them.

I seek your guidance. As I indicated in my responses, I am happy to provide the letter. I may seek leave of the Assembly to provide briefings so that I ensure we provide a thorough response rather than a rushed one by the end of the day to provide the other information that Mrs Dunne has requested.

Debate (on motion by Mr Barr) adjourned to a later hour.

Penalty rates

Debate resumed.

MS CHEYNE (Ginninderra) (3.32): I thank Mr Pettersson for raising this important issue today. The opposition was at pains yesterday and today to argue that decisions on penalty rates are outside the remit of this Assembly. Somehow, the opposition fails to understand that penalty rate decisions impact so many people in the ACT.
