Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2018 Week 2 Hansard (21 February) . .
MR BARR: It was a very comprehensive code of conduct issued at that time.
MR HANSON: Chief Minister, will the government develop a new code of conduct; if so, when?
MR BARR: I am not aware of any urgent need to do so, but I will take the matter under consideration.
MS LAWDER: Chief Minister, what changes will be made to the ministerial code of conduct following the governance issues that have arisen in the past few years?
MR BARR: The supplementary does not relate to the other questions.
Mrs Dunne: In your opinion. That is a ruling for the Speaker.
MADAM SPEAKER: I think the connection was the code of conduct. I will give you an opportunity to add to your answer, Chief Minister.
MR BARR: There is no relation between the supplementary question and the previous two questions.
Opposition members interjecting—
MADAM SPEAKER: I think the Chief Minister has answered the question.
MADAM SPEAKER: When your colleagues settle down, Mr Parton, you will have a chance to ask your question.
Government—Fyshwick land sale
MR PARTON: Thank you, Madam Speaker. My question is to the Minister for Planning and Land Management. Minister, on 19 February the Canberra Times reported that you approved works for a heavy rail siding in Fyshwick on a block of land sold by the government to a waste management company. The report indicates this would enable waste transportation from Canberra to Tarago; I dare say, by a little red engine. Minister, what did you know about the purchaser's intentions for this block of land when it was sold by your government?
MR GENTLEMAN: As I mentioned earlier in my answer to Ms Le Couteur's question, there are a number of complex and interrelated processes regarding this particular project. I have asked the directorate for a full briefing. I will take the question on notice and I will come back with all of those details for the Assembly.
MR PARTON: Minister, if the works at Fyshwick have not been approved then what exactly has been approved in relation to this proposal?
