Capital Metro—postcards (Question No 766)

Mr Coe asked the Minister for Transport and Municipal Services, upon notice, on 9 June 2016 (redirected to the Minister for Capital Metro):

Further to Question on Notice 749 in relation to the Myth v Fact postcards produced by Capital Metro (a) when were the postcards printed, (b) how many postcards were (i) retained by Capital Metro and (ii) distributed to third parties, (c) list the third parties who received the postcards, (d) how many postcards were destroyed due to the lack of an authorisation following the advice from the Electoral Commissioner, (e) what date did the destruction occur and (f) what efforts were made to track down all of the printed postcards.

Mr Corbell: The answer to the member's question is as follows:

a. The postcards were printed in June 2015.

b. Capital Metro printed 1000 postcards for use. An undefined number were distributed to members of the public at 'Party at the Shops' events.

c. Members of the general public received the postcards at public events.

d. The destroyed postcards were not counted. However all postcards in the possession of the Capital Metro Agency at the time of the advice from the Electoral Commissioner were destroyed.

e. Destruction began following advice from the Electoral Commissioner on 11 September 2015.

f. Once advice was received from the Electoral Commissioner, the CMA immediately ceased distribution of the postcards. No further action was taken to track down distributed cards given they were released at public events to undefined members of the public.

Budget—rates (Question No 767)

Mr Coe asked the Treasurer, upon notice, on 9 June 2016:

What will be the average rates for 2016-17 for each (a) suburb in Canberra and (b) of the out-years of the budget for (i) single dwellings and (ii) units.

Mr Barr: The answer to the member's question is as follows:

a) Table 1 below shows the average rates for single dwellings and units by suburb in Canberra in 2016-17.

b) Rates by suburb for single dwellings and units are based on the Average Unimproved Values (AUVs) for each property within the suburb. Rates for the forward estimates of the 2016-17 Budget are not available because AUVs for those years are not yet available.
