MADAM SPEAKER: I should have gone straight to Mrs Dunne’s question, yes.
MRS DUNNE: Starting again—
MADAM SPEAKER: Can we all calm down now. Mrs Dunne.
MRS DUNNE: Thank you, Madam Speaker. Minister, if you ever get around to presenting the six outstanding quarterly reports, will the information in them be presented in a consistent manner so that we will be able to have comparison across the period?
MS FITZHARRIS: Yes, to the extent possible, based on the recommendations provided to me through the review panel, which includes not only independent members from the National Health Funding Body and the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare but also, as I advised the Assembly this morning, a specific new addition to the review panel, an academic from the ANU.
I will take their advice because parts of the terms of reference for the system-wide review were to consider very seriously—indeed, it is one of the pillars of the review—the reporting to the public that is particularly relevant to the quarterly reports Mrs Dunne refers to.
MR MILLIGAN: Minister, what actions will you take to ensure that the statements that you have made in the Assembly are consistent with your statements to the Assembly since November 2016?
MS FITZHARRIS: I believe the question started with “what efforts will you make”. I will make every effort—
Mr Milligan: Actions.
MS FITZHARRIS: I will undertake every action available to me on the advice of ACT Health. In addition, since establishing the review panel in February, I will also take on board the recommendations of the review panel.
Hume—waste to energy plant
MS LEE: My question is to the Minister for Housing and Suburban Development. Minister, in question time on 14 September in answer to a question about the settlement date for the sale of land in Hume to the FOY Group, now IGE, you replied:
… the Foy Group has not met the requirements of the contract at this stage. It is still under a settlement process, which was the last advice I have received.
