Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2017 Week 10 Hansard (Tuesday, 12 September 2017) . . Page.. 3537 ..

MADAM SPEAKER: It has happened in this place before, and the previous Speaker has done that. Ms Cheyne.

Members interjecting—

MADAM SPEAKER: Are we all settled down, members?

MS CHEYNE: Chief Minister, can you update us on concessions generally available in the broader context of how stamp duty is also reducing for Canberrans generally?

Mrs Dunne: I still have got a point of order. Madam Speaker, on the point of order, the question was about rates concessions for elderly people and any bringing in of stamp duty is clearly not in conformity with the original two questions.

MADAM SPEAKER: Even though an opportunity was provided, I will rule it out of order. I am probably still reflecting on your SLAB debate as well.

Centenary Hospital for Women and Children—aluminium cladding

MS LAWDER: My question is to the Minister for Health. Minister, has the government ordered or procured new cladding for the Centenary Hospital for Women and Children? If so, when did that order take place?

MS FITZHARRIS: I thank Ms Lawder for the question. No, not to my knowledge.

MS LAWDER: Minister, have there been additional safety measures implemented inside the hospital, as we have seen announced at the Queanbeyan hospital?

MS FITZHARRIS: Yes, there have been.

MRS DUNNE: Minister, can you guarantee that all visitors and patients in the women’s and children’s hospital will be safe until the new cladding is replaced, and can you outline the safety procedures that you have put in place?

MS FITZHARRIS: Madam Speaker, there were two quite distinctly different questions in that question. I would ask you to rule on whether I ought to answer both of them or just one.

Mrs Dunne: Madam Speaker—

MADAM SPEAKER: On the point of order, Mrs Dunne.

Mrs Dunne: There is no point of order.

Ms Cody: Point of order.

MADAM SPEAKER: Point of order.
