MR WALL: Chief Minister, what conversations and meetings did you have with Mr David Lamont or his companies regarding this deal both before and after the LVC transactions occurred?
MR BARR: I had conversations with the Brumbies, through their then chief executive, Andrew Fagan, and their board chair, Sean Hammond, and the University of Canberra through their chancellor and vice-chancellor.
MADAM SPEAKER: A supplementary question, Mr Wall.
MR WALL: Chief Minister, what involvement did Mr Lamont or his companies have regarding the transaction and the $7.5 million benefit?

Minister for Transport and Municipal Services—Manuka Oval redevelopment
MR DOSZPOT: My question is to the minister for transport and education. Minister, before being briefed by your husband on the redevelopment proposal at Manuka Oval on 8 February, what specific steps did you take to ensure that you did not have a conflict of interest during the briefing?
MS FITZHARRIS: I thank Mr Doszpot for his question. As has been put on the public record, as an MLA and now as a minister I have adhered to both the code of conduct for members of this place and now to the ministerial code of conduct. I sought advice upon my appointment to the Assembly and also to the ministry from the ACT Legislative Assembly Ethics and Integrity Adviser.
MADAM SPEAKER: A supplementary question, Mr Doszpot.
MR DOSZPOT: Minister, who arranged the briefing?
MS FITZHARRIS: The briefing was offered from the consortium bringing forward the unsolicited proposal. It was arranged with my office.
MADAM SPEAKER: A supplementary question, Ms Lawder.
MS LAWDER: Minister, why was a TAMS staff member involved in this briefing?
MS FITZHARRIS: It is routine for directorate officials to attend briefings with minsters.
