he would like to refer to TAMS for investigation to potentially extend the length of time, we are very happy to do that.

I also was asked a question—I think it was a supplementary—by Mr Seselja in relation to the number of OwnPlace properties. I apologise to the Assembly that the numbers I provided were for the land rent scheme, of which 600 had settled and 600 were exchanged. The numbers for OwnPlace are 454, of which 293 are complete, 106 are under construction and 55 are scheduled to commence construction this year.

Leave granted.

MRS DUNNE: I table the following papers:
