Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2013 Week 2 Hansard (14 February) . . Page.. 657..

Political parties—agreements (Question No 11)

Mr Seselja asked the Attorney-General, upon notice, on 29 November 2012:

(1) What is the expected cost of establishing a Community Legal Centre Hub as agreed to in the Labor-Greens Parliamentary Agreement.

(2) When is it anticipated that funding for this initiative will begin.

(3) What will the funding allocated in the 2012-13 budget for the relocation of the Woman's Legal Centre be used for, given the new Labor-Greens Parliamentary Agreement.

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

1) The cost of the proposed hub will not be known until suitable premises have been identified.

The ACT Government's Community Legal Centre Hub Feasibility Study, tabled in March 2012, presents broadly framed options and very approximate costs of those options.

2) Funding is a matter for consideration by Cabinet.

3) The new commitment to establishing a CLC hub overtakes the previous allocation in the 2012-13 Budget for the relocation of the Women's Legal Centre. This matter will be further considered by Government.

Environment—carbon neutral fund (Question No 12)

Mr Seselja asked the Minister for the Environment and Sustainable Development, upon notice, on 29 November 2012:

(1) How many applications has the Carbon Neutral Fund received to date.

(2) How many projects or initiatives have been successful and what (a) are the details of each successful project or initiative, (b) is the cost of each project or initiative and (c) is the estimated loan repayment period for each project or initiative.

(3) How many projects or initiatives are currently being considered.

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

(1) Three applications were received and considered by the Assessment Panel for Round 1 of the Carbon Neutral Government Fund (the Fund). Applications for Round 1 closed on 8 November 2012.

(2) One project was recommended for funding and a memorandum of understanding is in negotiation for that project currently.
