Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2002 Week 9 Hansard (20 August) . . Page.. 2482..


MRS DUNNE (continuing):

The current Planning Minister is very keen to complain about the previous Liberal government's ad hoc and market-driven approach to planning. I would like to conclude, Mr Deputy Speaker, with a remark made by Mr Mark Latham, a federal colleague of these people. In the Canberra Times on 1 June it is reported that he said:

I've always thought Canberra is the best-planned city in Australia.

In eight years I have been travelling here it has answered its critics in terms of achieving a more active cosmopolitan lifestyle.

I submit that Mr Latham has it right and this government does not. There is an argument ahead of us, and we have to have it. The question is: is Canberra a genuinely sustainable suburb?

MR DEPUTY SPEAKER: Order! The member's time has expired. The discussions is concluded.

At 5.00 pm, in accordance with standing order 34, the debate was interrupted. The motion for the adjournment of the Assembly was put and negatived.
