Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 1996 Week 12 Hansard (21 November) . . Page.. 3992..


PLANNING AND ENVIRONMENT - STANDING COMMITTEE
Report on Contaminated Sites - Government Response

MR HUMPHRIES (Attorney-General and Minister for the Environment, Land and Planning) (4.10): Mr Speaker, applause is unparliamentary, so we cannot respond in that way. For the information of members, I present the Government's response to Report No. 12 of the Standing Committee on Planning and Environment, entitled "The adequacy of processes relating to identifying and managing contaminated sites in the ACT", which was presented to the Assembly on 26 June 1996. I move:

That the Assembly takes note of the paper.

This Government response was circulated to members of the Planning and Environment Committee some couple of weeks ago, and I do not propose to say much more about it at this stage. I can advise members that the results of the bio-availability tests are imminent, and I am led to believe that the result is likely to be considered satisfactory from the point of view of members of the community affected by this contamination.

Debate (on motion by Mr Moore) adjourned.
