Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2016 Week 6 Hansard (4 May) . .
MADAM SPEAKER: A supplementary question, Mr Coe.
MR COE: Minister, what inclusions are there comprising the in-kind sponsorship for the Brumbies from the University of Canberra; and have you ever sought to find out information about this arrangement?
MS FITZHARRIS: I reiterate my previous answer that this is a matter for the University of Canberra. I have not received any representation on this matter in my role as minister for higher education or my role as an MLA.
MADAM SPEAKER: Supplementary question, Mr Hanson.
MR HANSON: Minister, has any other entity paid a cash sponsorship to the Brumbies on the University of Canberra's behalf?
MS FITZHARRIS: Certainly, again, that is a matter for the University of Canberra and one of which I am not aware.
MADAM SPEAKER: A supplementary question, Mr Hanson.
MR HANSON: Minister, have you received any representations from Mr David Lamont, his associates or companies regarding any proposal for development at the University of Canberra?
MS FITZHARRIS: No, not at any point.
MR SMYTH: My question is to the Chief Minister. I refer to a report in today's Canberra Times citing your remarks on predatory behaviour of larger clubs in the ACT. Chief Minister, is it your preference that smaller clubs would cease to exist entirely or be saved by another club?
MR BARR: My preference is that clubs that were established for a particular community purpose be able to continue to operate for that community purpose.
MADAM SPEAKER: A supplementary question, Mr Smyth.
MR SMYTH: Chief Minister, what impact has the government's increases in rates and charges, licensing fees, regulation and red tape had on the viability of clubs in the ACT?
MR BARR: The government has been reducing red tape and regulation for the club sector, and clubs have also been the beneficiary of significant payroll tax cuts in recent times.
