Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 1996 Week 9 Hansard (29 August) . . Page.. 2764..


MS TUCKER (continuing):

The other comment I have to make is that, if they were correct about where they thought the road was going, it seems to be an extremely expensive option. There was a little wetland there; it was a natural drain, and for practical reasons I am very surprised that they would want to put a road there. If they put it further back towards where the CSIRO is now, it would cost less. You wonder about the rationale behind even that side of it. I am delighted that this is going to be looked at a little more carefully, and I am happy to support Ms Follett's motion.

Question resolved in the affirmative.

ADMINISTRATION AND PROCEDURE - STANDING COMMITTEE
Report on Legislative Assembly (Broadcasting of Proceedings) Bill 1995 - Government Response

Debate resumed from 21 May 1996, on motion by Mrs Carnell:

That the Assembly takes note of the paper.

MR MOORE (11.29): I will take just a moment or two to comment that, having had the Government response to the paper, with the indication of the Administration and Procedure Committee to proceed through them, I will be preparing drafting instructions in accordance with the way the Government has responded and hope to be able to get those to the Assembly in the not too distant future.

Question resolved in the affirmative.

PLANNING AND ENVIRONMENT - STANDING COMMITTEE
Report on 1996-97 Draft Capital Works Program - Government Response

Debate resumed from 23 May 1996, on motion by Mrs Carnell:

That the Assembly takes note of the paper.

MR MOORE (11.29): I rise briefly to comment more on the process than on the report of the committee on the draft capital works program. I believe that there has been a very positive process whereby the committee has worked in an appropriate way with the Government. I would like to take the opportunity to congratulate the government officers, who have spent a great deal of time ensuring that they worked as closely as possible with the committee to improve the processes for capital works. I appreciate the Chief Minister making those officers available to us, allowing us to work both formally and informally to ensure that we have the best possible process. I think it has brought about some very positive outcomes, and I hope we will see increased positive outcomes when we go through the same process in the not too distant future.
