Home Insulation Program

(Question No. 895)

Mr Fletcher asked the Minister for Climate Change and Energy Efficiency, in writing, 13 March 2012:

In respect of the claim submitted by the Demand Group under the Scheme for Compensation for Detriment caused by Defective Administration arising out of the Home Insulation Program, can he confirm that written advice was provided by his department to the Demand Group indicating that the 'Department is working towards a response being provided to you by the end of February [2012]...'; if so, was the response was provided by the timeframe indicated, if not, why not, and by when will the response be provided.

Mr Combet: The answer to the honourable member's question is as follows:

On 15 February 2012, the Department of Climate Change and Energy Efficiency advised Mr Doug Mill of the Demand Group that 'at this time the Department is working towards a response being provided to you by the end of February, subject to internal clearance processes running smoothly.' The response was not provided by the end of February as it was not ready to be provided to the Demand Group at that time. The response was provided on 28 March 2012.
