Kambah—leasehold inspections

(Question No 2130)

DR FOSKEY asked the Minister for Planning, upon notice, on 3 July 2008:

Can the Minister advise how the lessee of the block at 54 Morant Circuit, Kambah has flagrantly flouted the law as advised in his answer to question on notice No 1815; if not, will the Minister apologise for making unsubstantiated allegations under parliamentary privilege.

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

The Member should note that the lessee of 54 Morant Circuit referred to in my reply to your question on notice 1815 is no longer the lessee of the block.

I have attached some of the photographic evidence collected by officers of both the Commonwealth and Territory governments over the last 30 years during which time the former lessee repeatedly flouted the law. The photographs were taken in response to complaints that had been made about the state of the block and the detrimental impacts it has had on the neighbouring houses and surrounding public land for the majority of that time.

I have no intention of making an apology.

(Copies of the attachments are available at the Chamber Support Office).


(Question No 2131)

DR FOSKEY asked the Minister for Tourism, Sport and Recreation, upon notice, on 3 July 2008:

(1) What ACT Government financial support is provided to the sport of calisthenics in the ACT;

(2) Is any other support made available;

(3) What are the Government's reasons for this level of support;

(4) What venues are available and suitable for calisthenics activities in the ACT.

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

1. Assuming this refers to 2008, Calisthenics ACT received operational support of $9,000 from the Sport and Recreation Grants Program.

2. Additional support for specific projects and equipment may also be available through the Sport and Recreation Grants Program - $1,500 was provided for equipment in 2008.

3. Calisthenics provides health, economic and social benefits to participants and the wider community.
