Prices—Martin review

(Question No 536)

Mr Seselja asked the Chief Minister, upon notice, on 10 February 2010:

(1) What consideration did the Chief Minister's Department give to Treasury pricing surveys which were conducted on 16 April 2008 and 4 June 2009 in the context of the Martin Review.

(2) What information from these surveys were included in the Martin Review.

(3) What other pricing information was used in the review to perform analysis of the ACT grocery market and did this include data published on the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission's GroceryChoice website.

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

1. The Review document was authored by Mr Martin, not the Chief Minister's Department. Mr Martin did have access to the ACT Treasury pricing surveys which were conducted on 16 April 2008 and 4 June 2009.

2. Reference to the ACT Treasury pricing surveys is included on pages 6,11,24,53,54,75,93 of the Martin Review.

3. It is my understanding that Mr Martin used data published on the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission's GroceryChoice website along with ACT Treasury pricing survey's and market intelligence supplied by industry on a commercial-in-confidence basis.
