Planning—variation Nos 327 and 347

MR CORBELL (Molonglo—Deputy Chief Minister, Attorney-General, Minister for Health, Minister for the Environment and Minister for Capital Metro): I seek leave to move a motion concerning variations to the territory plan Nos 327 and 347.

Leave not granted.

Standing orders—suspension

MR CORBELL (Molonglo—Deputy Chief Minister, Attorney-General, Minister for Health, Minister for the Environment and Minister for Capital Metro) (3.56): I move:

That so much of the standing orders be suspended as would prevent Mr Corbell from moving a motion concerning Variations to the Territory Plan Nos. 327 and 347.

Madam Deputy Speaker, I am moving to suspend standing orders today in relation to these two important variations to the territory plan because they relate to delivering certainty to allow for important decisions to be made about investment—investment in and the finalisation of outcomes for the capital metro project, and investment into the University of Canberra to grow the University of Canberra as a key education hub for our city.

We know that the Liberal Party have signalled that they do not support growing the University of Canberra as a place for investment, as a place for collaboration between the private sector and the university itself. They have proposed to disallow the variation to the territory plan in relation to the University of Canberra. We also know that their opposition to the capital metro project is often stated in this place. But they also know that there is a majority in this place that supports seeing the capital metro project proceed.
