Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2007 Week 9 Hansard (25 September) . . Page.. 2626..
MR BARR (continuing):
The shadow minister has not read the spatial plan. He shoots his mouth off to the Canberra Times, saying that this is policy on the run. Mr Speaker, what you have to say is that it is rhetoric on the run from the shadow planning minister. He has not bothered to get across the detail of what is a major piece of work—the major strategic document in planning for the ACT. The shadow planning minister has shown his ignorance in his comments to the Canberra Times in another attempt to score a cheap political point. He did not bother to read the document. There are countless other references—I am happy to spend the remaining 12 seconds quoting from others. But what I will do for the shadow planning minister is send him a link to the spatial plan. It is on the front page of the ACTPLA website. I will make it easy for him.
