Questions without notice
MR HANSON: My question is to the Minister for Transport and Municipal Services and concerns yesterday's budget. Minister, on Monday, 6 June you confirmed that Weston Creek will receive a direct ACTION service to the city. The service is known as the Weston line. The announcement follows a similar announcement made in March by the Canberra Liberals. Minister, can you confirm that the ACT budget only funds the Weston line for a one-year trial?
MS FITZHARRIS: I thank the Leader of the Opposition for the question. Indeed, this has been a very well-received and funded initiative in this year's budget. It is indeed for a one-year trial but I certainly expect it to be a very popular service that we should be able to continue in the future.
MADAM SPEAKER: A supplementary question, Mr Hanson.
MR HANSON: Minister, why did you neglect to mention it was a trial in your media statements?
