Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2016 Week 6 Hansard (4 May) . .
MR HANSON: Was Mr Lamont or his company associated with the Manuka land swap proposal involving MOCCA?
MADAM SPEAKER: I am sorry, what was the last bit "involving"?
MR HANSON: MOCCA.
MR BARR: No, not that I am aware of.
MADAM SPEAKER: A supplementary question, Mr Hanson.
MR HANSON: Chief Minister, did Ms Burch, you, your office or any of your government officials discuss the Manuka land swap with Mr Lamont or his company or associates?
MRS JONES: My question is to the Minister for Education. Minister, in August last year you supported an amended motion that inter alia supported a return of the lease of the Telopea Park tennis courts to school and community use. Given that the courts are now listed on a separate block to the oval when once they both sat under block 5, section 36, what is the current leasehold status of both block 6, section 36 and block 7, section 36: the oval and the tennis courts?
MR RATTENBURY: I have inquired about this matter since becoming education minister to ensure that those blocks have been returned to the school. My recollection is that they have been. In terms of the very specific questions about block and section numbers Mrs Jones has asked, I will seek clarity on that to make sure that I am able to give the Assembly the full answer.
MADAM SPEAKER: A supplementary question, Mrs Jones.
MRS JONES: Is there a reason that both blocks have not been returned to the Education Directorate for educational use only, and is there any reason to keep them as separate blocks?
MR RATTENBURY: I was not involved in and I am not aware of the process of how those blocks were returned. As I say, the inquiries I have made have been to ensure that the school has access to those blocks but I am happy to follow up on Mrs Jones's question.
MADAM SPEAKER: A supplementary question, Mr Doszpot.
MR DOSZPOT: Minister is there a time frame attached to either of the leases?
MR RATTENBURY: I will have to take that on notice.
