It is considered that all of the above questions are the responsibility of the Minister for Urban Services. However, in relation to question number 9 I would like to respond that on the 31 December 2001 the ACT Bushfire Service did attend a fire in the horse paddock at Mt Painter in Cook. One tanker and two light units attended from that service and the ACT Fire Brigade responded two units. There was no direct attributable cost incurred in relation to this incidence.
