MRS JONES: Minister, when will the court backlogs be cleared?

MR CORBELL: I am very pleased to say that the new Chief Justice, Her Honour Chief Justice Murrell, has undertaken a very creative program to address systemic problems with workload practice, and that is delivering results in both the civil and the criminal jurisdictions. I commend the Chief Justice on her efforts.

MADAM SPEAKER: A supplementary question, Mrs Jones.

MRS JONES: When will the ACT have a fifth permanent full-time judge?

MR CORBELL: It is not for me to announce government policy on that matter at this time.

Uriarra Village—proposed solar farm

MR WALL: My question is to the Minister for the Environment and Sustainable Development. Minister, residents of Uriarra Village have now been waiting since August of last year for a development application to be submitted for the large-scale solar project proposed for block 213 section 1 at Coree. Have any documents in relation to this project been submitted to ACTPLA?

MR CORBELL: If the question is has a DA been lodged, my understanding is not at this time.

MADAM SPEAKER: A supplementary question, Mr Wall.

MR WALL: Minister, what stage of the planning process is the project currently at?

MR CORBELL: The pre-DA stage.

MADAM SPEAKER: A supplementary question, Mr Smyth.

MR SMYTH: Minister, when will a decision about the use of block 213 section 1 at Coree be made?

MR CORBELL: After a DA has been lodged.

MADAM SPEAKER: A supplementary question, Mr Smyth.

MR SMYTH: Minister, will you confirm you will not use your call-in powers to fast-track the construction of a large-scale solar project on the site?

MR CORBELL: As I have previously indicated, the question as to whether or not those powers will be exercised is speculative at this time. No DA has yet been lodged.
