Trade unions—royal commission

Mr Barr (in reply to a supplementary question by Mr Wall on Thursday, 4 August 2016):

The Royal Commission referred allegations of misconduct against a CFMEU official relating to an ACT WorkSafe Inspector's evidence about an incident at a worksite where that he felt pressured by CFMEU officials to issue a Prohibition Notice.

The evidence received from the Royal Commission was referred to the ACT Director of Public Prosecutions. Based on the Director of Public Prosecutions' advice, no further compliance action will be taken on that matter.

The Royal Commission also referred matters in relation to community contribution declarations under the Gambling and Racing Control Act and the Gaming Machine Act 2004.

This matter has been referred to ACT Police and I am advised that an assessment of the matter is underway.

The Government is committed to ensuring any allegations referred by the Royal Commission are properly and fully investigated. Under the circumstances, it would be inappropriate to speculate on a timeframe for finalising the outstanding investigations.

Land—block 24, city

Mr Barr (in reply to a supplementary question by Mr Coe on Thursday, 4 August 2016): The principal study on Coranderrk Pond was undertaken as part of a consultancy on the feasibility of Parkes Way, which was commissioned in December 2013. That study formally identified the need to relocate Coranderrk Pond and recommended investigation of Block 24 Section 65 City as a replacement wetland.

Land—block 24, city

Mr Barr (in reply to a supplementary question by Mr Doszpot on Wednesday, 3 August 2016):

Aquis Entertainment presented its proposal to the ACT Government under Stage 1 of the Investment Proposal Guidelines (IPG) process on 27 August 2015. Part of this presentation made reference to Block 24 Section 65 being within the footprint of the precinct surrounding the casino.

The ACT Government received an unsolicited bid from Aquis Entertainment for the redevelopment of Canberra Casino. The unsolicited proposal is not specifically for this block. The block is referenced as being within the footprint of the precinct surrounding the casino.
