Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2011 Week 10 Hansard (22 September) . . Page.. 4317..


On 9 September, you stated that "contracts had been signed", that "there was no improper conduct" and schools would all be eligible for the higher rate. Minister, the only way to clarify this apparent contradiction is to provide evidence of when contracts were signed. Will you provide the Assembly, by close of business today, with a complete list of the dates on which each school's contract was signed?

MR CORBELL: I have seen those contracts and they were entered into well in advance of the closure of the feed-in tariff scheme. The contracts are issued by the Education and Training Directorate. You would have to ask the Minister for Education and Training.

MR SPEAKER: Mr Seselja, a supplementary.

MR SESELJA: Minister, can you explain how contracts could be in place when the memo states that, as at June 7, formal contracts were not, for the most part, in place?

MR CORBELL: As Mr Seselja notes, the memo was a draft memo. It was not provided to me. The memo was based on incomplete and inaccurate information and remained as a draft with no further action.

MR SPEAKER: A supplementary question, Mr Coe.

MR COE: Minister, can you explain how contracts could be place when the memo states that as of June 7 formal contracts were not for the most part in place?

MR CORBELL: I refer Mr Coe to my previous answer.

MR COE: A supplementary, Mr Speaker.

MR SPEAKER: Yes, Mr Coe.

MR COE: Minister, can you explain how contracts could be in place when a memo states that as at 7 June negotiations had not, for the most part, even commenced?

MR CORBELL: I refer Mr Coe to my previous answer.

Schools—Catholic

MS HUNTER: My question is to the minister for economic development and is in regard to the proposal for a secondary Catholic facility in Gungahlin. Minister, when did the government inform the Catholic Education Office that the initial site allocated for a secondary facility at Throsby adjacent to Mulligans Flat nature reserve was not suitable, and what reasons were provided to the Catholic Education Office for this?

MR BARR: I will have to take that question on notice. I do not have the exact date that that information was provided. I am not entirely sure that it was provided in the way that Ms Hunter has phrased it, so I will take that on notice and provide further information.
