Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2001 Week 9 Hansard (22 August) . . Page.. 3164..


Farmers market

MR RUGENDYKE: My question is to the Chief Minister, Mr Humphries. Earlier this month there was an advertisement in the local press calling for interest in a farmers market to be held on a regular basis in the city. The advertisement claimed that the venture was supported by the ACT government. Can the Chief Minister share with the Assembly the level of support that the government is lending to this proposal, and in what form is that support being given?

MR HUMPHRIES: I thank Mr Rugendyke for that question. I have received a number of letters on that subject in recent days and I have referred those letters to my colleague the Minister for Business, Tourism and the Arts. Since I am Minister for Business, Tourism and the Arts this week, I will take that question on notice. The answer is not available to me at the moment but I am certainly concerned about that as well. I will obtain an answer for you and report to the Assembly.

MR RUGENDYKE: Mr Speaker, I ask a supplementary question. Chief Minister, could you find out whether a senior member of the government bureaucracy attended a meeting at Cooma recently, speaking in support of the proposal to regional farmers? Could you explain why that occurred?

MR HUMPHRIES: I will take that part of the question on notice as well.

Mr Speaker, I ask that further questions be placed on notice.

Impulse Airlines

MR HUMPHRIES: Mr Corbell asked me in question time which milestone is currently overdue, and the answer is the regional operations headquarters.
