Planning and Development Act 2007—schedule of leases
Paper and statement by minister
MR BARR (Molonglo—Minister for Education and Training, Minister for Planning, Minister for Tourism, Sport and Recreation and Minister for Gaming and Racing): For the information of members, I present the following paper:
Planning and Development Act, pursuant to subsection 242(2)—Schedule of leases granted for the period 1 January to 31 March 2011.
I ask leave to make a statement in relation to the paper.
MR BARR: Section 242 of the Planning and Development Act 2007 requires that a statement be tabled in the Legislative Assembly each quarter, outlining the details of leases granted by direct sale. The schedule I have just tabled covers the leases granted for the period 1 January to 31 March 2011. I can advise the Assembly that, in addition, eight single dwelling house leases, two of which were land rent leases, were granted by direct sale in this quarter.
Motion by Mr Corbell proposed:
That the Assembly do now adjourn.
MR HANSON (Molonglo) (5.54): I would like to make a speech in support of the Raiders and the Brumbies, our local teams who are toiling hard this year but who are doing it hard. I would like to offer my support and I am sure that I will be joined by my colleagues here in the Assembly in that sentiment. I offer our support to Don Furner and to all the team, the management team and the playing team of the Raiders and Tony Rae and all the management team and the playing team of the Brumbies.
Many of us—certainly I have—would have been out to Raiders games and Brumbies games this year and cheered them on, watched some narrow losses and been looking for a win. I am sure that a win is around the corner and the boys will be training hard and will provide that for the community.
I was disappointed to hear that one of the playing team of the Raiders had his car vandalised. I think that that is not an Australian sort of behaviour and it is certainly not what we want to see here in Canberra. I would say to all of the fans, who may be a little frustrated, to stay behind their teams, the Brumbies and the Raiders. To be a true fan, you have got to be there not only in the good times but in the hard times as well. That is what we expect from the supporters of our great football teams.
