Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2014 Week 4 Hansard (6 May) . . Page.. 1112..

as our city continues to grow to close to half a million people by 2050, we have the capacity for that growth to be smart, for that growth to be in the right locations—close to services, close to jobs, close to facilities, where more people can walk, where more people can cycle, where there can be more activity on the street and where there can be livelier public places. That is why we need to ensure that we focus on the centres as part of the light rail master planning work. I am very pleased that that work has now commenced.

Ms Gallagher: I ask that all further questions be placed on the notice paper.


Madam Speaker, pursuant to standing order 191, presented the following papers:

Standing order 191—Amendments to:

Construction and Energy Efficiency Legislation Amendment Bill 2014, dated 16 April 2014.

Lifetime Care and Support (Catastrophic Injuries) Bill 2014, dated 16 April 2014.

Paper and statement by minister

MS GALLAGHER (Molonglo—Chief Minister, Minister for Regional Development, Minister for Health and Minister for Higher Education): I present the following paper, which was circulated to members when the Assembly was not sitting:

University of Canberra Act, pursuant to section 36—University of Canberra—Annual report 2013 (2 volumes), dated April 2014.

I seek leave to make a short statement.

Leave granted.

MS GALLAGHER: I am pleased to table the University of Canberra annual report for 2013. The report is tabled under section 36 of the University of Canberra Act. This annual report highlights many of the exciting projects and achievements at the university since 2013 and presents a fine picture of the success of higher education in the ACT.

In the important area of research, the University of Canberra's performance has continued to improve. Research publications have increased by 91.5 per cent from 2009 to 2012 and research income jumped from $11.6 million to $17.3 million over the same period. In overall terms, the university's revenue for the year increased by 6.2 per cent, which resulted in achieving an operating surplus of $16.1 million in 2013.
