Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2017 Week 11 Hansard (Tuesday, 19 September 2017) . . Page.. 3901 ..
I have been engaging with my counterpart veterans ministers to discuss what more can be done, to share ideas and to leverage off each other’s experience. I have met with the federal minister twice this year to discuss how we can best support veterans transitioning and how the territory and federal governments can work together on this. I am currently preparing for the annual defence ministers roundtable where all the veterans ministers for each jurisdiction will come together to share information and experience with this year’s theme of transition.
I have also met with the New South Wales veterans minister and public servants to look at their successful employment program and to see what lessons we can learn from them. I have also recently appointed a new and expanded Veterans Advisory Council. Many of the appointees I have chosen for this body have mentioned to me the importance of helping with the transition to civilian employment. One of the early priorities of the council will be to provide advice on how this can be best supported. I will ensure that anything the government designs is evidence based and meets the needs of those who are seeking to serve.
Mr Barr: This must be a record. I ask that all further questions be placed on the notice paper.
Supplementary answers to questions without notice
MS BERRY: I was asked a question by Mr Hanson regarding the number of dwellings planned for the Chapman public housing renewal site. I indicated that there were around 30. There were 29 initially. That number has been revised to 20. I have emailed Mr Hanson the link on the Chapman public housing renewal process so that he can keep himself up to date.
Health—code of conduct
MS LE COUTEUR: I ask that the minister for health take my second question on notice as well. She answered that AHPRA looked after health practitioners, but I am advised that it is only for registered ones.
MADAM SPEAKER: Procedurally, I think we are in a grey area. Is leave granted for the question to be asked again?
MADAM SPEAKER: Can you repeat the question, and then it can be taken on notice.
MS LE COUTEUR: My question was: what alternative regulation regimes exist in the ACT to issue temporary and/or permanent prohibition orders regarding non-registered health practitioners who engage in unprofessional or dangerous practices?
MS FITZHARRIS: I will take the question on notice.
