Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2011 Week 10 Hansard (22 September) . . Page.. 4447..

(3) How many times was the charging of adult prices to students or children attributable, or partly attributable, to Government error.

(4) How will the Government address this problem.

(5) Will the Government pay refunds to people who were charged in error, or provide some other kind of compensation.

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

(1) The Government has been made aware of some instances where students have been using standard MyWay cards rather than student cards for travelling.

(2) The cause of the problem is that parents/students have purchased standard cards rather than student cards either on line or at agents. It is not possible to determine the number of instances that have occurred.

(3) The Government is unable to provide information as to how many times this may have taken place.

(4) To ensure easy access to student MyWay cards, the Government has revised the process for issuing of student MyWay cards and these are now available at recharge agents and MyWay centres.

(5) During the rollout of the MyWay system the Government adjusted, where required, the travel balances of passengers who may have purchased incorrect cards. Any further situations will be assessed on a case by case basis.

Belconnen waste recycling facility—improvement notices (Question No 1739)

Mr Coe asked the Minister for Police and Emergency Services, upon notice, on 25 August 2011:

In relation to the former Building Waste Recycling facility in Belconnen how many Improvement Notices have been issued by ACT Emergency Services in (a) 2006, (b) 2007, (c) 2008, (d) 2009, (e) 2010 and (f) 2011 to date.

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

The fire that began on 20 August 2011 in the Parkwood industrial area was located at a tyre recycling facility called Allbulk (previously known as "No Waste Wood Busters").

The ACT Emergency Services Agency (ACT Fire Brigade) issued one (1) Improvement Notice on 29 October 2007 to Allbulk.

In 2009, four Improvement Notices were issued to a different facility located within the Parkwood industrial area, which subsequently went into liquidation.
