Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2002 Week 10 Hansard (29 August) . . Page.. 3042..
Mr Stanhope: I ask that further questions be placed on the notice paper, Mr Speaker.
Auditor-General's Report No 6
Mr Speaker presented the following paper:
Auditor-General Act-Auditor-General's Report No 6 of 2002-Annual Management Report for the Year ended 30 June 2002, dated 28 August 2002.
Motion (by Mr Stanhope, by leave) agreed to:
That the Assembly authorises the publication of the Auditor-General's Report No 6 of 2002.
Questions without notice
MR STANHOPE: I have, on behalf of Mr Corbell, who is indisposed, a couple of questions taken on notice by Mr Corbell which I will table. I will indicate to members which questions on notice they were.
On 28 August 2002, Mr Stefaniak asked Mr Corbell about how a government land development agency would be able to do more-that is, work within the same financial parameters as a private sector developer and still be able to provide more. I table Mr Corbell's response to that answer, which very effectively debunks Mr Stefaniak's assertions.
Harcourt Hill remnant woodland
MR STANHOPE: I have a further answer to a question taken on notice by Mr Corbell. On 28 August, Ms Tucker asked Mr Corbell about Harcourt Hill remnant woodland. Mr Corbell has provided a detailed response to Ms Tucker's question. I am happy to read these, if members wish. Otherwise, I table that answer.
MR STANHOPE: This is a question I took on notice. On 28 August, Mr Smyth asked me about the provision for land development in the current year's budget and drew attention to the Gungahlin Development Authority. I have an answer which I will table in relation to that. The answer explains, for Mr Smyth and the Assembly, that the Gungahlin Development Authority does not receive an appropriation, and that the moneys Mr Smyth referred to were related to an increase in estimated budget outcomes. I will table that answer for the information of members.
