MADAM SPEAKER: Order! Mr Corbell has the floor. Chief Minister, Mr Coe, I cannot hear Mr Corbell.

MR CORBELL: with the only consideration being whether or not the release of some information may compromise the tender process, and we are seeking further advice on those questions.

MADAM SPEAKER: A supplementary question, Mr Smyth.

MR SMYTH: Minister, will the final full business case provide an extensive cost-benefit analysis, and will that cost-benefit analysis be released in full?

MR CORBELL: The final business case contains a detailed cost-benefit analysis, and I expect that information will be made available.

MADAM SPEAKER: A supplementary question, Mr Coe.

MR COE: Minister, does the full business case urge the government to deliberately favour development in the corridor, as was argued by the Capital Metro Agency in the rapid business case?

MR CORBELL: There are good reasons why the government is seeking further advice about the release of the final business case before undertaking that exercise, for the reasons that I have outlined earlier. In relation to a range of these questions that the opposition is asking, those details will become very clear when the final business case is released.

MADAM SPEAKER: Supplementary question, Mr Coe.

MR COE: Minister, have the contractors working on the final full business case completed work on that document?

MR CORBELL: Yes, they have.

DR BOURKE: My question is to the Chief Minister. Chief Minister, could you please advise the Assembly what impact you believe the Mr Fluffy legacy will have on our infrastructure budget in the short to medium term and what will be the key priorities for the government as you prepare to meet this challenge once and for all?

MS GALLAGHER: I thank Dr Bourke for the question. As Dr Bourke's question indicates, the government is determined to resolve the Mr Fluffy legacy once and for all. The history of the issue spans close to 50 years, half the life of our city, and I believe—and I think it is a shared view across this Assembly—that now is the time to end the saga for the sake of the 1,000-plus Canberra homes affected.
