Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2016 Week 2 Hansard (18 February) . .
MR COE: The question was: will you rule out removing rates concessions from schools?
MR BARR: I think the question is seeking an announcement of government policy. What I will say is that the government is considering the issues raised in the concessions review. I would think it highly unlikely that there would be change in that area.
MADAM SPEAKER: A supplementary question, Mr Coe.
MR COE: Chief Minister, will you give confidence to residents of retirement villages over ruling out removing rates concessions for such properties?
MR BARR: I refer the member to my previous answer.
MADAM SPEAKER: A supplementary question, Mr Doszpot.
MR DOSZPOT: Minister, will you rule out removing rates concessions for childcare centres?
MR BARR: As I indicated in answer to Mr Coe's first question, it is highly unlikely that there will be change in that area.
MR DOSZPOT: Minister, will you categorically rule out removing rates concessions for sporting groups?
MR BARR: It would be highly unlikely that there would be change in that area.
Mr Hanson: Boring and repetitious?
MADAM SPEAKER: No, that only relates to debate, Mr Hanson. You should know that by now. Ms Porter, a question without notice. I note that this is Ms Porter's last question to the Assembly.
MS PORTER: Thank you. My question, though you, Madam Speaker, is to the Minister for Transport and Municipal Services. I hope you note that it is also about TAMS, Madam Speaker. Minister, last week you announced that upgrades are underway to shops in Cook, Rivett and Mannheim Street in Kambah. Could you outline for the Assembly the details of what these upgrades will deliver for the local community?
MS FITZHARRIS: I thank Ms Porter very much for her last question in this Assembly—fittingly one on local shopping centres. Recently it was a great pleasure for me to meet with local residents and business owners in Cook, Rivet and Kambah
