Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2007 Week 7 Hansard (21 August) . . Page.. 1707..
MR GENTLEMAN (Brindabella) (12.10), in reply: I will just respond quickly to comments from members of the committee. I thank them for their comments today and look forward to the debate next week. But I will comment on the level of submissions by the opposition today. I draw members' attention to page 30 of the additional comments and dissenting report. In discussion of a pool gymnasium the total of the recommendation is that we see the main report. I would like to comment on Mrs Burke's remarks that the chair made no mention of economic management in the report. From page 23 there are nine pages of discussion on economic management. So it is hard to believe that we were in the same room. With that, I thank everybody for their input, especially, as I said at the beginning, the assistance from the secretariat, and look forward to the debate next week.
Question resolved in the affirmative.

Legal Affairs—Standing Committee (performing the duties of a Scrutiny of Bills and Subordinate Legislation Committee)—Scrutiny Report 43, dated 13 August 2007, together with the relevant minutes of proceedings.
I seek leave to make a brief statement.
MR SESELJA: Scrutiny Report 43 contains the committee's recommendations on nine bills, nine pieces of subordinate legislation and eight government responses. The report was circulated to members when the Assembly was not sitting. I commend the report to the Assembly.
Planning and Environment—Standing Committee
MR GENTLEMAN (Brindabella) (12.13): I present the following report:
Planning and Environment—Standing Committee—Report 28—Variation to the Territory Plan No 276—ANU City West Precinct "The ANU Exchange", dated 19 June 2007, together with a copy of the extracts of the relevant minutes of proceedings.
That the report be noted.
The city centre is undergoing significant rejuvenation on the back of economic growth, with construction and redevelopment moving forward in leaps and bounds. It is important that City West, in particular the ANU exchange, be involved in this
