MR COE: My question is to the Minister for Transport and Municipal Services. Minister, the government has publically discussed the possibility for a Russell extension to capital metro. Recently the government announced that the ACT government would seek a mandate before committing to the city to Russell extension of capital metro.

MR CORBELL: I will take the question as the Minister for Capital Metro. Madam Speaker, no.

MR CORBELL: No.

MADAM SPEAKER: Supplementary question, Mrs Jones.

MRS JONES: Minister, will you reveal the estimated financing costs of the Russell extension before the next election?
