MR HANSON: I fear that the Chief Minister may have misled the Assembly and I am inviting him to either correct the record or clarify his response to a question without notice.
MADAM ACTING SPEAKER: You need leave to make a statement.
MR HANSON: I seek leave to make a brief statement.
MR HANSON: I asked a question in question time today with regard to the efficiency dividend being applied to the DPP. The Treasurer responded that there is no efficiency dividend being applied to the DPP. The response that has been provided to me previously and to the estimates committee, to which I refer members and which I am happy to table, is the response to question on notice 166 from the Attorney-General. It says:
The current breakdown of the allocation of the $4.9m JACS Directorate portfolio efficiencies by business unit and percentage of the estimated business unit appropriation is outlined below:
It allocates a $228,000 efficiency dividend to the DPP. Either the Attorney-General has misled in response to the estimates committee or the Treasurer has misled the Assembly in his response to my question without notice. I invite the Treasurer to clarify or correct the record.
MR BARR: There is no government policy for an efficiency dividend.
