Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2016 Week 4 Hansard (5 April) . .
MADAM SPEAKER: A supplementary question, Mr Coe.
MR COE: Minister, did the independent reviewer for whom you released the report today see the underlying assumptions which underpin the benefit-cost ratio found in the capital metro full business case?
MR CORBELL: The scope of the independent reviewer is clearly outlined in his report.
MADAM SPEAKER: Supplementary question, Mr Doszpot.
MR DOSZPOT: Minister, how can Canberrans have confidence in the capital metro business case when you will not release this data?
MR CORBELL: It is not clear to me which data Mr Doszpot is referring to, Madam Speaker. The government has released the full business case for capital metro and has answered at length many, many questions about the underlying assumptions in the business case. That has included detailed examination in this place and in this place's committees, both select and standing committees, and we continue to provide a level of transparency that is unprecedented for a public-private partnership in Australia.
No other government in the country, to the best of my knowledge, has released the full business case in advance of the development of a project for a public-private partnership. So we have a clear commitment to transparency and we have a clear commitment to a very high level of detail that demonstrates why the government has made the investment decision it has.
MADAM SPEAKER: A supplementary question, Mr Doszpot.
MR DOSZPOT: Minister, how does failing to make the underlying assumptions data available fit in with your government's commitment to transparency and openness?
MR CORBELL: Mr Doszpot really should have listened to my earlier answers before he asked the supplementary. I refer him to my earlier answers.
Sport—Brumbies rugby union club
MR SMYTH: My question is to the Minister for Tourism and Events. Minister, what role did the ACT government play in facilitating the deal between the University of Canberra and the Brumbies?
MADAM SPEAKER: Minister Barr, I think this is a question that it is in your bailiwick to answer. I am not quite sure that it was directed appropriately; you might advise the Assembly where it might be better directed.
MR BARR: It may in fact refer to a period when I was minister for tourism, sport and recreation, but I will, nonetheless, take the question.
