Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2015 Week 11 Hansard (22 September) . .
MADAM SPEAKER: A supplementary question, Mr Smyth.
MR SMYTH: Chief Minister, what is the role of the public service commissioner with respect to the unauthorised leaking of the Mr Fluffy list?
MR BARR: The head of the task force, Mr Kefford, wrote to the Commissioner for Public Administration to undertake an inquiry when he became aware of the possible unauthorised release of a list. He also wrote to the head of ACT Police.
MADAM SPEAKER: Supplementary question, Mr Hanson.
MR HANSON: Chief Minister, when were you advised that the AFP had been requested to investigate the leaking of the full Mr Fluffy house list?
MR BARR: On 22 June, although I was overseas at the time. I received a full briefing on my return.
MR HANSON: Chief Minister, what administrative or staffing actions have been taken to date in response to the investigations about the leaking of the Mr Fluffy list?
MR BARR: The head of the task force has written to the Commissioner for Public Administration and to the Chief Police Officer. Investigations are underway. The details of those investigations have been provided, as much as they can be, to the media and, through the media, to the public, last week.
MR WALL: My question is to the Minister for Capital Metro. Minister, the environmental impact statement completed for capital metro details the closure of 255 car spaces on the north-west edge of London Circuit car park across from the Melbourne Building. Minister, did you consult with any of the affected businesses prior to the release of the EIS?
MR CORBELL: I thank Mr Wall for his question. The purpose of the draft EIS, which is what was released—not the final, but the draft EIS—was for consultation. So in the context of that consultation process, yes, I did meet with a number of business operators in the Melbourne Building and in the surrounding precincts of University Avenue. I did that a number of months ago now following the release of the draft EIS.
I appreciate very much the discussion I had with representatives of those businesses. They expressed to me their concerns about access in relation to parking should that full car park be utilised. I stressed to them that the government had not taken any final decisions in relation to that site, that we were very cognisant of the issues that they were raising and that we would continue to work with them to identify alternatives to make sure that there was not any detrimental impact on the operation of their businesses, and that remains the government's commitment.
