Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2016 Week 6 Hansard (7 June) . .
University of Canberra—development
MR SMYTH: My question is to the minister for higher education. Minister, the Canberra Times of 6 May 2016 reported that Mr David Lamont was the University of Canberra's project adviser on campus development. Did Mr Lamont, his associates or companies make representations to the government about the deregulation of planning controls on the University of Canberra campus or other UC-related matters?
MS FITZHARRIS: I thank Mr Smyth for his question. Certainly not in the time that I have been minister.
MADAM SPEAKER: Supplementary question, Mr Smyth.
MR SMYTH: Minister, did Mr Lamont, his associates or companies make representations to the government about the University of Canberra sports hub or other budget-funded initiatives on the University of Canberra campus?
MS FITZHARRIS: Not to my knowledge in the time that I have been minister.
MADAM SPEAKER: A supplementary question, Mr Doszpot.
MR DOSZPOT: Minister, did you have a conflict of interest, given your connection to consultants to UC and your role as minister for higher education?
MS FITZHARRIS: No, I did not.
MADAM SPEAKER: Supplementary question, Mr Doszpot.
MR DOSZPOT: Minister, have you met with Mr Lamont regarding matters at UC or any other issue?
MADAM SPEAKER: Could repeat the question? I did not hear the beginning of it, Mr Doszpot.
MS FITZHARRIS: As I indicated in the last Assembly sitting, no I have not.
Sport—Brumbies rugby union club
MR COE: My question is to the Treasurer and Minister for Tourism and Events. I refer to the report in the Canberra Times of 5 June 2016 regarding an audit of the ACT Brumbies' finances. Minister, will the government be undertaking an audit regarding matters at the Brumbies?
MR BARR: The government is working with the Brumbies in relation to their financial situation. We have, under the terms of our performance agreement with the Brumbies, sought further advice in relation to their financial circumstances.
