Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2011 Week 6 Hansard (23 June) . . Page.. 2413..


Mr Seselja: Here it is. Here's the test.

MR SPEAKER: Mr Seselja, you are now warned for repeated interjection when I am trying to get order in this place.

Mr Seselja: Sorry, warned for what?

MR SPEAKER: Repeated interjection, Mr Seselja. Mr Corbell.

MR CORBELL: Mr Speaker, no discourtesy is meant; I am simply seeking your clarification as to what you are requiring of me.

MR SPEAKER: Mr Corbell, I uttered your name at least four times then while you were looking directly at me asking you to sit down and you ignored me. I do not expect to have to do that. That is why you have now been warned.

MR CORBELL: Okay.

MR SPEAKER: Where are we up to? Mr Seselja, a supplementary question.

MR SESELJA: Minister, why have you failed to learn the lessons from other projects managed under your watch, such as the GDE, the AMC, the urban wetlands and the ESA headquarters, that were not delivered on time, on budget or to original specifications?

MR CORBELL: We have a comprehensive analysis of the issues surrounding the delivery of the north Weston ponds project, which the government has taken very seriously. The government is looking very closely at the issues raised in the Auditor-General's report. It was this government that commissioned the Auditor-General's report, to look into why issues around coordination between government agencies were not being appropriately addressed. We will be responding in a comprehensive manner to the issues raised in the Auditor-General's report.

MR SPEAKER: A supplementary question, Mr Seselja?

MR SESELJA: Yes, thank you. Minister, what are you doing to better equip yourself with the necessary skills to oversee the management of capital works projects?

MR CORBELL: I thank Mr Seselja for the question. I am confident that I will continue to receive the level of advice and information required to make appropriate decisions in relation to these projects in the same way that we are delivering very, very important projects such as improved emergency services facilities, improved public transport facilities, improved recycling facilities, improved facilities such as upgrades of local shops and all of the other important projects that are necessary to continue to make Canberra a good place to live for its residents.
