Answers to questions on notice

Questions 2996, 3008, 3034 and 3054

MRS DUNNE: In accordance with standing order 118A, I ask the Minister for Health why she has failed to answer the following questions on notice: No 2996, relating to public health services being offered for children in the ACT, which was due on 7 June; No 3008, relating to nurse walk-in centres, which was due on 21 June; No 3034, relating to emergency department performances, which was due on 7 July; and No 3054, relating to the operation of theatres and surgical beds in ACT hospitals, which was due on 19 July.

MS STEPHEN-SMITH: In relation to question on notice 2996, I am still awaiting this response, but I note that much of the information in relation to the earlier questions in that QoN is publicly available, and the rest is very detailed information on which we are awaiting some further advice from Canberra Health Services, who, obviously, have been extremely busy over the last little while. But I do recognise that that response is significantly overdue and apologise to Mrs Dunne for that.

In relation to question on notice 3008, that has been returned by me to the directorate for advice, as some of the figures that were provided were not consistent with information that I had previously received. I wanted to seek some clarification about why that was the case and ensure that Mrs Dunne gets a completely accurate answer.

In relation to question on notice 3034, that did arrive in my office this week, but it does require some further work to be done on it and I will be responding to that as quickly as possible. In relation to question on notice 3054, this is a few days overdue. It is a very long and complex question, of the kind that I would have been very proud to have submitted from opposition in the process of developing election policies. That will take a little bit longer to complete because of the detail and complexity of the questions that Mrs Dunne has asked.

Supplementary answers to questions without notice

Schools—Costello review

MR COE: Regarding Ms Le Couteur’s question to the government, I draw her attention to Hansard of 10 December 2009.

MADAM SPEAKER: I do not really think it falls under a question time matter, but I am sure Ms Le Couteur has taken the message.


Madam Speaker presented the following papers:

Legislative Assembly (Members’ Superannuation Act), pursuant to section 11A—Australian Capital Territory Legislative Assembly Members Superannuation Board—Annual report 2019-2020, dated 2 July 2020.
