Paper and statement by minister
MR SMYTH (Minister for Urban Services, Minister for Business, Tourism and the Arts and Minister for Police and Emergency Services): Mr Speaker, for the information of members, I present the following paper:
Land (Planning and Environment) Act, pursuant to section 216A-Schedules-Leases granted, together with lease variations and change of use charges for the period 1 October to 31 December 2000, including leases granted to Argos Pty Limited, Defence Housing Authority and Decoin Pty Limited
I ask for leave to make a short statement.
MR SMYTH: Section 216A of the Land (Planning and Environment) Act specifies that a statement be tabled in the Legislative Assembly outlining details of: leases granted by direct grant; leases granted to community organisations; leases granted for less than market value and leases granted over public land. The schedule I now table covers leases granted for the period 1 October 2000 to 31 December 2000. I am also tabling two other schedules relating to variations approved and changes of use charges for the same period.
Mr Speaker, in September 1997 my colleague the Chief Minister, then the Minister for Environment, Land and Planning, tabled Disallowable Instrument No 228 of 1997 for the direct grant of land for any or all of commercial, residential, industrial and tourism purposes. In the tabling statement, Mr Humphries indicated that a copy of the lease and a statement setting out why the lease was sold would be tabled in the Assembly. I wish to table for the benefit of members copies of three leases granted under Disallowable Instrument 228 of 1997.
