Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2016 Week 1 Hansard (9 February) . .
MR BARR: No.
MADAM SPEAKER: A supplementary question, Mr Wall.
MR WALL: Chief Minister, what have you done personally to remove yourself from influencing the directorate, given the direct financial connections between the CFMEU and the party you lead, being the ACT Labor Party?
MR BARR: I have no involvement in the matter.
MR WALL: Chief Minister, is the directorate able to freely and without outside influence make a decision on whether charges should be laid against the secretary of the CFMEU for allegedly intimidating an inspector?
MR BARR: I think the premise of Mr Wall's question is incorrect, but the directorate is indeed free of any political interference in this matter.
MR COE: My question is to the Minister for Capital Metro. Minister, the ACT government has, of course, selected Canberra Metro as its preferred consortium to build light rail. Minister, what is the interest rate, or the cost of finance, proposed by the Canberra Metro consortium?
MR CORBELL: As the government has indicated in announcing the preferred tenderer, Canberra Metro, the details that Mr Coe seeks will be part of the disclosure made following contractual and financial close of negotiations with the preferred tenderer.
MADAM SPEAKER: A supplementary question, Mr Coe.
MR COE: Minister, will the interest rate and all future payments payable to the consortium be published at the time of release of the contract?
MR CORBELL: I refer Mr Coe to the partnerships framework, the government policy that exists in relation to the entering into of PPPs, and that states very clearly what the time frames are and what information is disclosed through the finalisation of the PPP. So I refer him to that.
MADAM SPEAKER: A supplementary question, Mrs Jones.
MRS JONES: Minister, what off-site work requirements have been proposed by Canberra Metro?
MR CORBELL: Unless Mrs Jones can give me further particulars, it is difficult for me to answer that question.
