Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2007 Week 6 Hansard (7 June) . . Page.. 1653..

MR STANHOPE (continuing):

As a result of comments that Ms Pegrum has apparently made this evening to the media, and it is most unfortunate this matter is, it seems, being debated now through the front page of the Canberra Times, not between officers as we would prefer—

Mrs Burke: Well, whose fault is that, Chief Minister? That is your fault.

MR STANHOPE: That is absolute garbage.

Mrs Burke: That is your fault.

MR SPEAKER: Order, Mrs Burke!

MR STANHOPE: Mrs Burke, that is absolute garbage. Have you listened to a thing I have just said? Have you listened to a single thing I have just said?

Mrs Burke: It is not. Read what you—

MR SPEAKER: Order, Mrs Burke!

Mrs Burke: Sorry, Mr Speaker.

MR SPEAKER: This is also the advice I take. The question Mrs Burke asked before was: from whom do I take my advice? I now take my advice from Mr David Dawes who is in fact Mr George Tomlin's senior officer. This is a statement from Mr David Dawes:

The advice that my department has received today from Mr Phil Wales of the NCA was that a variation to the National Capital Plan to insert a planning overlay on the land swap site to make planning conditions identical to those on the existing site would be taken to the NCA board on 20 June. A record of the conversation between my office and the NCA was read to Mr Wales and he confirmed it as a true and accurate record of the conversation ... I am at a loss to understand why Ms Pegrum has now contradicted the advice provided by her own staff.

MR SPEAKER: The member's time has expired.

Tabling of documents

MRS DUNNE (Ginninderra) (9.15): Mr Speaker, I move, pursuant to standing order 213:

That the documents quoted from by Mr Stanhope (Chief Minister) be presented to the Assembly.

Mr Stanhope: I table the documents, Mr Speaker, with pleasure.

MR SPEAKER: Mrs Dunne, I do not know whether you want to proceed with your motion now. If not, you need to seek leave to withdraw.
