Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2014 Week 5 Hansard (13 May) . . Page.. 1389..


MR BARR: I will need to check that exact date. There had been some rumours in relation to the company in recent weeks. By "ACT government,"do you mean any official within the entirety of the ACT government or do you mean me personally, Mr Wall? I will take it to mean me. Because I have access to that information, I will find the date of the first brief I received and provide that to the Assembly.

Transport—light rail

MR COE: My question is to the Treasurer. Treasurer, what options is the government considering in order to fund light rail in the ACT?

MR BARR: A range of options.

MADAM SPEAKER: A supplementary question, Mr Coe.

MR COE: Treasurer, when does the ACT government expect to finalise the funding arrangements for light rail?

MR BARR: In the fullness of time.

MADAM SPEAKER: Supplementary question, Mr Smyth.

MR SMYTH: Treasurer, why has the government not finalised how light rail will be funded before establishing the Capital Metro Agency?

MR BARR: We are investigating a variety of procurement options.

MADAM SPEAKER: A supplementary question, Mr Smyth.

MR SMYTH: Treasurer, how much money has the government already spent or allocated to spend on light rail in the ACT?

MR BARR: I think the shadow treasurer can read previous budget papers and do some adding up, Madam Speaker.

Alcohol—law reform

DR BOURKE: My question is to the Attorney-General. Attorney, you recently released the independent report on the review of liquor law reforms introduced in 2010. Can you please tell the Assembly about the major findings in this report?

MR CORBELL: I thank Dr Bourke for his question. I recently released the two-year review of the ACT's 2010 liquor law reforms prepared by the consulting firm ACIL Allen Consulting. The terms of reference for the review required that the review assess the impact of the new laws in terms of both alcohol-related violence and public health outcomes, and involved analysis of relevant data held by government agencies such as the Office of Regulatory Services, Health, Policing and the Ambulance Service.
