six-months of 2014. That is being developed now and that is scheduled for release, as usual, early in the new year.

MADAM SPEAKER: A supplementary question, Mrs Jones.

MRS JONES: Minister, who are you consulting with on this plan?

MS BURCH: Groups would include the Ministerial Advisory Council on Women, the Young Women's Christian Association, the Women's Centre for Health Matters, the Women's Legal Centre as I understand it, and the Multicultural Women's Advocacy group. Those are just a few of the names that come readily to mind. Certainly, we are very open to any member of the community being in touch and providing comment on the development of the new arrangements.

MADAM SPEAKER: Supplementary question, Mr Wall.

MR WALL: Minister, when will the plan be announced outlining the details of when the courses run by the women's referral centre will be available again?

MS BURCH: As I have said previously, the What's on for women calendar is being developed now. As planned, as it usually is, it is released at the very end of the year or very early in the new year, ready for the first six months.

MADAM SPEAKER: Supplementary question, Mr Wall.

MR WALL: Minister, what are the aims of the plan and when will these services again be announced?

MS BURCH: The calendar will be available early in the new year. The plan is that the full range of offerings will be available for women across Canberra in various locations.


MADAM SPEAKER: Before I call any further questions without notice, I acknowledge the presence in the gallery of the former Deputy Chief Minister, Mr Lamont. Welcome back to the Assembly.

Questions without notice

Housing—land rent scheme

MS LAWDER: My question is to the Treasurer. Treasurer, a person without a lease prior to 1 October 2013 with a household income of more than $94,500 per annum will pay land rent at four per cent per annum. A person who signed a lease after 1 October with an income of less than $160,000 will pay two per cent. Government figures currently show there are 460 individuals under the land rent scheme at the four per cent rate. As a result of the government's changes to the land rent scheme with the implementation of the Land Rent (Amendment) Bill 2013, how many people on the four per cent rate would technically qualify for the two per cent rate under the new scheme?
