During question time on Thursday, 8 February, I agreed to seek advice about deliverables under the Implementation Plan for the National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Plan 2013-2023 in response to a question from Senator Dodson. My advice from the minister is that, as of 8 February, 23 deliverables are complete and all remaining deliverables are being actively progressed to meet the 2018 milestones. I also inform the Senate that Scotty James just won a bronze in the snowboard half-pipe.

Where answers are longer than a couple of paragraphs, you should seek leave to have them included in the Hansard, and I did remind ministers of the same issue last week.
