Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2001 Week 10 Hansard (29 August) . . Page.. 3621..
MR MOORE: Yes, Mr Speaker, it is appropriate that people in the ACT know the circumstances, and that is why the correct thing for Mr Wood to do is approach Mrs Bishop's office or I will do that on his behalf. I don't know what information we have in the department, Mr Wood; that is why I offered a briefing on whatever we have. We try to work closely with Mrs Bishop's office in order to get a better outcome. I have spoken in the Assembly of working with her in order to get some extra beds at Morling Lodge not so long ago. If I can be helpful I will.
Mr Humphries: I ask that further questions be placed on the notice paper.
MR HUMPHRIES: Mr Speaker, I took a question on notice from Mr Berry on 23 August about Williamsdale quarry. I present the following paper:
Williamsdale quarry-Answer to question without notice asked of the Treasurer by Mr Berry and taken on notice on 23 August 2001.
MR HUMPHRIES: Mr Speaker, on 9 August Mr Stanhope asked me a question about ACTTAB. Mr Corbell also asked me a question about ACTTAB on the same day. On 23 August. Mr Corbell asked me another question about ACTTAB. I table answers to those questions. I present the following papers:
ACTTAB headquarters-Answer to question without notice asked of the Treasurer by Mr Stanhope and taken on notice on 9 August 2001.
ACTTAB headquarters-Answer to question without notice asked of the Treasurer by Mr Corbell and taken on notice on 9 August 2001.
ACTTAB headquarters-Answer to question without notice asked of the Treasurer by Mr Corbell and taken on notice on 23 August 2001.
MR SMYTH: Mr Speaker, on 21 August, after a question from Mr Corbell, Mr Humphries agreed to seek more information. That information is as follows.
The maintenance agreement mentioned in Transgrid's report, Investment into easement maintenance in the Canberra area, has been finalised between Transgrid and a number of other New South Wales government agencies. This is an appropriate mechanism to ensure coordination between agencies of one government, given Transgrid is a New South Wales government corporation.
In the case of Transgrid's easement in the ACT, it is important to have a more formal arrangement, based on appropriate environmental and development approvals, for work that an agency of one government wishes to undertake in the jurisdiction of another government.
