Government—published expenditure

MR COE: Madam Speaker, my question is to the Chief Minister regarding expenditure in his agencies. Chief Minister, how much has your directorate spent on Westside village? In particular, what has been the expenditure on staff and external supplies and services since the Property Group took control of the facility?

MR BARR: A relatively small amount—a very small amount. I will seek some information for the member.

MADAM SPEAKER: A supplementary question, Mr Coe.

MR COE: Chief Minister, are expenses incurred by your agencies over $25,000 published on line in accordance with the Government Procurement Act 2001?

MR BARR: My understanding is yes.

MADAM SPEAKER: A supplementary question, Mr Wall.

MR WALL: Chief Minister, has the LDA declared published payments over $25,000 for the month of June in accordance with the Government Procurement Act 2001?

MR BARR: I will need to check that.

MADAM SPEAKER: A supplementary question, Mr Wall.

MR WALL: Are governance and compliance issues in your directorate contributing to a perception of integrity issues with your government?

MR BARR: No.

Environment—water quality

MS BURCH: My question is to the Minister for the Environment and Climate Change. Minister, you recently announced that the government was successful in securing the balance of the $85 million a year Australian government funding for the basin priority project. Can you inform the Assembly of how the funding will be distributed across the catchments and how many projects have been supported?

MR CORBELL: I thank Ms Burch for her question and her interest in this important project that is going to help improve water quality across the ACT's waterways. As members would recall, the government has been successful in securing approximately $85 million worth of funding from the Australian government to complement our own commitment of $8.5 million to improve water quality in the ACT's lakes and waterways.
