Questions without notice
Planning—Brumbies lease variation
MR HANSON: My question is to the Chief Minister. Chief Minister, did Mr David Lamont or his associates or companies have any dealings with your government or your bureaucracy about the sale of the Brumbies land at Griffith or their move before 2013?
MR BARR: I do not believe so, but I will check the record to confirm that my recollection is correct.
MADAM SPEAKER: A supplementary question, Mr Hanson.
MR HANSON: Chief Minister, who was granted the $7.5 million waiver of the lease variation charge?
MR BARR: I believe the Brumbies, who were the then lessees of the former Canberra south bowling club. Again, just to ensure that the record is 100 per cent accurate, I will check the correspondence and confirm that.
MADAM SPEAKER: Supplementary question, Mr Coe.
MR COE: Chief Minister, did Mr Lamont, his associates or companies make representations to the government to have the LVC waived?
MR BARR: Again, Madam Speaker, I do not believe so. I believe the representations came from the Brumbies themselves. Again, I will confirm that. But that is my recollection.
MADAM SPEAKER: A supplementary question, Mr Coe.
MR COE: Chief Minister, who in the government negotiated the LVC waiver and gave notification of the waiver?
MR BARR: Those are matters that the Treasury has policy responsibility for.
University of Canberra—Brumbies sponsorship
MR COE: My question is to the minister for higher education. Regarding development proposals and activities at the University of Canberra, what is the nature of UC's sponsorship of the Brumbies, and what is the cash component of this deal?
MS FITZHARRIS: That is a matter for the University of Canberra.
