Mr Barr: I ask that all further questions be placed on the notice paper.
Leave of absence
Motion (by Mr Wall) agreed to:
That leave of absence be granted to Mr Milligan for today’s sitting of the Assembly due to personal reasons.
MRS DUNNE (Ginninderra) (3.16): Madam Speaker, I seek leave to make a statement under standing order 46, as I have been misrepresented.
MRS DUNNE: In Question Time today Ms Fitzharris said that I wanted to close walk-in centres. I have never made a statement to that effect, and neither has my predecessor, Mr Hanson. It is not the intention of the Canberra Liberals to close walk-in centres.
Answer to question on notice
Question No 1632
MS LEE: In accordance with standing order 118A, I ask the Minister for Transport for an explanation for the lateness of the answer to a question on notice which was due on 1 September. That is question 1632, which relates to drinking fountains at local shops. I note that the minister’s office sent my office an email yesterday at 12.20 stating that it would be late, but failed to provide an explanation for not answering the question within the time frame set out in the standing orders.
MS FITZHARRIS: I will follow up on that.
