Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2001 Week 3 Hansard (6 March) . . Page.. 611..
MR HUMPHRIES (continuing):
building, ($0.952 million), works at the ACT Hospice ($0.93 million), and the pathology building ($0.855 million) at the Canberra Hospital.
Also during the second quarter a number of projects progressed to the final stages of completion. Works at the ACT Hospice are now 96 per cent complete. The Gundaroo Drive extension project (Rolf Avenue to Gungahlin Drive) is 93 per cent complete, and 100 per cent of works at EPIC are completed.
I commend the second quarter report on the capital works program for 2000-01 to the Assembly. I move:
That the Assembly takes note of the paper.
MR STANHOPE (Leader of the Opposition) (4.06): I rise to give the Minister for Education an opportunity to explain all the amazing perambulations on the construction of the Belconnen pool and what he has done with all our money for our pool. I do not know whether you want to take the opportunity, Minister, to explain exactly what you intend in relation to the Belconnen pool, but I am becoming extremely nervous at the prospect of you turning the sod another half-dozen times before the next election. What do I see in the capital works program? Money from Belconnen pool is to be used for cooling Gordon demountables.
Debate (on motion by Mr Quinlan ) adjourned to the next sitting.
