Australian National Botanic Gardens—summer concerts

(Question No 1781)

Dr Foskey asked the Chief Minister, upon notice, on 21 November 2007:

Is the Australian National Botanic Gardens being forced to reduce the number of summer concerts in its program this year; if so, given the popularity of these concerts with Canberra people, will the Minister enter into discussions with the Friends of the Australian National Botanic Gardens with a view to supporting the concert program this summer and/or for further seasons.

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

(1) Yes. The summer concert season will take place over only two weekends - 12 and 13 January, and 19 and 20 January 2008.

(2) It is not appropriate for the ACT Government to discuss the Department of Environment and Water Resources' decision to reduce the concert program with the Friends of the Australian National Botanic Gardens. However, I would be willing to raise the issue in future discussions with the new Federal Minister responsible for the Botanic Gardens.
