Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2016 Week 7 Hansard (4 August) . .
MR BARR: Certainly the government can provide an update in relation to those matters, most of which are administrative in nature. We can do so in due course. I cannot commit to a time frame on that—certainly not by the end of next week—but I will take some advice in relation to when I can update the community on those matters.
MADAM SPEAKER: A supplementary question, Mr Wall.
MR WALL: Chief Minister, how long will it take the government to consider all the referrals made by the royal commission and to act on them?
MR BARR: As I said in response to the previous question, I will take advice on that question.
MADAM SPEAKER: Supplementary question, Mr Wall.
MR WALL: Chief Minister, have Labor powerbrokers such as Dean Hall taken any action to persuade the government not to act or to delay action on the referrals? If so, what was the government's response?
MR BARR: No.
MR JEFFERY: Madam Speaker, my question is directed to the Minister for Police and Emergency Services. Minister, are you aware of the drug dealing and hooning that takes place around the Tharwa bridge?
Mr Corbell: I am sorry; could I ask Mr Jeffrey to repeat the question?
MADAM SPEAKER: Could you repeat the question, Mr Jeffrey. Mr Corbell did not hear you.
MR JEFFERY: I am sorry, Madam Speaker; I have a little bit of difficulty hearing.
MADAM SPEAKER: So did Mr Corbell, apparently! Could you repeat the question, please.
MR JEFFERY: My question is directed to the Minister for Police and Emergency Services. Minister, are you aware of the drug dealing and hooning that takes place around the Tharwa bridge, particularly at night time?
MR CORBELL: I thank Mr Jeffrey for his question. Yes, I am familiar with the fact there have been complaints from time to time in relation to antisocial behaviour and assertions and concerns about trading in illicit drugs in the Tharwa village area. The advice I have is that the Tuggeranong police station, which is responsible for patrolling that area, has take a range of steps to try to address a range of concerns and that they will continue to undertake proactive patrols in the Tharwa area, particularly in relation to antisocial driving and drug offences.
