Mr Cornwell asked the Minister for Environment, upon notice, on 22 June 2004:

Further to your reply to Question on notice No 1237 of 1 March 2004 which stated that discussions have commenced between Environment ACT and the Department of Defence about clearing the bridle trail from the Duntroon Horse Paddocks to Mount Ainslie of possible unexploded ordinance, (a) what is the progress to date and (b) when might the trail be reopened.

(a) Representatives of Environment ACT and the Department of Defence met on 29 June 2004 to review the on-going hazard assessment of the unexploded ordinance (UXO) affected lands near Campbell Park Offices. The outcome of this latest meeting is that the Department of Defence is unable to initiate further clearance of the site at this time, however, discussions are continuing on the most appropriate method to clear the trail of UXO.
