Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2001 Week 7 Hansard (21 June) . . Page.. 2334..
Lyneham tennis centre
MR STEFANIAK: Mr Hargreaves asked me a number of questions, some of which I answered and some of which I took on notice, in relation to the Lyneham tennis centre. An amount of $1.2 million was paid to Tennis ACT this current financial year to enable it to upgrade facilities at the Lyneham tennis centre. Those upgrades included the construction of five Rebound Ace tennis courts, construction of a main stadium, and upgraded player and tournament facilities. Of course, the centre hosted the Canberra International Women's Tournament in January of this year. Tennis ACT has submitted a full and detailed acquittal, which has been independently audited.
Mr Hargreaves also asked me about some of the debts accrued to date. They are debts accrued by the developer; they are the responsibility of the developer. As other ministers have said, the government has clearly indicated already that approval for the development proposed on the site will not be allowed to proceed until all outstanding debts have been settled.
