Business Questions Without Notice, QWN

ASSISTED SCHOOL TRAVEL PROGRAM
Page: 8875

Ms CARMEL TEBBUTT: My question is directed to the Minister for Education. Was the automated payment system for contractors who transport children with disabilities fixed by last Friday, as recommended in the Boston report?

Mr ADRIAN PICCOLI: On Monday I met with Chris Raper, former deputy director general of the Department of Premier and Cabinet, who has been charged with implementing the recommendations from the Boston report. I have every confidence that he will do a very good job. That meeting included the Director-General and other senior executives of the New South Wales Department of Education and Communities. I have directed the Director-General to hold meetings every week because I am absolutely committed to making sure that the recommendations are implemented. Any failures identified by Dr Boston will be fixed and we will make sure that the errors that occurred with the Assisted Student Transport Program do not recur.

The SPEAKER: Order! I call the member for Toongabbie to order. I call the member for Toongabbie to order a second time.
