MR MULCAHY: I thank you for the advice, Mr Speaker.
Supplementary answers to questions without notice
Moderate income land ballot
MR CORBELL: Mr Speaker, in question time today, Dr Foskey asked me what happens with those blocks of land offered through the moderate income land ballot but not sold on the day. I am happy to advise Dr Foskey that those blocks not sold on the day of the ballot are now for sale directly over the counter from the Land Development Agency to eligible moderate-income buyers, the same people who would be eligible through the ballot process.
