Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2007 Week 13 Hansard (6 December) . . Page.. 4146..

The Authority will respond depending on the course of action the objector wishes to take.

It is also common practice to telephone and speak with an objector who has applied for confidentiality in cases where:

    • the details provided in the objection clearly identifies who the objector is (i.e. the proposed extension will overlook my bedroom) regardless of whether or not their name and address is withheld;
    • the objection contains inflammatory comments about the person seeking development approval. In these cases it is suggested that an objector may wish to amend their objection and keep it focused on the planning issues only, so as not to create conflict with the DA proponent; and
    • there is not enough information provided for the Authority to make a decision.

(2) The definition of "public interest"is not defined in the Land (Planning and Environment) Act 1991.

Finance—consolidated revenue

(Question No 1753)

Mr Mulcahy asked the Treasurer, upon notice, on 13 November 2007:

Given that the June Quarter 2007 Consolidated Financial Report which includes updated figures for the 2006-07 and the 2007-08 financial years, but does not contain updated forward estimates for future years, has the Government determined the updated forward estimates of the financial figures for future years; if so, what are the most current updated figures for (a) Tables F.1 to F.12 of the Budget (BP3, pp. 278-291), (b) Table 3.1.2 of the Budget (BP3, p. 31) and (c) Tables 3.1.6 to 3.1.11 of the Budget (BP3, pp. 41-48).

Mr Stanhope: The answer to the member's question is as follows:

(1) The June Quarter 2007 Consolidated Financial Report contains information relating to the 2006 07 financial year. It does not contain any financial information for the 2007 08 financial year.

Tables F.1 to F.12 of Budget Paper No. 3 are financial statements prepared to meet the requirements of the Uniform Presentation Framework (UPF). It is a requirement of the UPF that these be updated as part of a Mid Year Review, published and provided to Loan Council members by end February of each financial year. The Government will be updating the UPF as part of its Budget Mid Year Review as required by Section 20A of the Financial Management Act 1996 which requires that the Review be presented to the Legislative Assembly or circulated out of session to Members no later than 15 February in each financial year.

Although the Budget Mid Year Review will provide an update of summary level information for revenue (Table 3.1.2), the level of detail outlined in Tables 3.1.6 to 3.1.11 will not be updated until the release of the 2008 09 Budget.
