MS GALLAGHER: I am happy to provide that to the Assembly. It would be very, very low. With the opening of the Tuggeranong and Belconnen walk-in centres, there was obviously a very small marketing budget associated with ensuring people knew they were opening and where they were.

Planning—project facilitation

MR COE: My question is to the Minister for Planning. On 24 June this year, the then Minister for Environment and Sustainable Development informed the estimates committee in relation to the project facilitation bill that the government proposed to put forward a revised bill later this year. Minister, when will the revised bill be presented to the Assembly?

MR GENTLEMAN: I thank Mr Coe for his question on that particular issue. I have not given any consideration to when that bill may be brought forward or redesigned at this stage, but I am certainly taking some counsel on it.

MADAM SPEAKER: A supplementary question, Mr Coe.

MR COE: Minister, how will the consultation for the next round of the bill differ from the first round?

MR GENTLEMAN: I thank Mr Coe for the supplementary question. That will be determined on the amount of consultation that we want to go forward with for that proposed bill but at this stage, as I said, I have not had any thoughts on how that may go forth.

MADAM SPEAKER: A supplementary question, Mr Wall.

MR WALL: Minister, will the legislation include project or precinct-specific clauses?

MR GENTLEMAN: I thank Mr Wall for his question. As I said, I have not had any thoughts on how the bill may proceed or whether it would involve those clauses or not.

MADAM SPEAKER: Supplementary question, Mr Wall.

MR WALL: Minister, will you ensure that community groups are consulted before the bill is presented to the Assembly?

MR GENTLEMAN: I thank Mr Wall for his question. Certainly for any bill that I want to bring forward I am very concerned about consultation. I want to make sure that all people are consulted, and so I am very keen to ensure that all community groups are consulted. Indeed, as you are aware, Mr Wall, with the Uriarra residents group, I am very keen to have their consultation. I have been out to visit them several times.
