Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2018 Week 9 Hansard (21 August) . . Page.. 3301 ..

MS FITZHARRIS: I thank Mr Pettersson for the supplementary question. As I have indicated, formal consultation on the proposed new bus network closed just a little over a week ago and, as I have already outlined, the government received a record amount of feedback from the community, including on specific local services, how interchanges will work in the future and what else we can do to help Canberrans use public transport more.

I can assure members of this place that the government is looking closely at the feedback received and considering how the proposed network—

Mr Gentleman: Madam Speaker, on a point of order, Mr Hanson has interjected seven times during this answer and is continuing even during this discussion. The noise from the opposition in question time needs to be dealt with.

Mr Wall interjecting—

MADAM SPEAKER: Mr Wall, no interjections. Just let the minister answer the question. It would be exciting for all of us to get through question time without any interjections. Minister.

MS FITZHARRIS: Thank you, Madam Speaker. Nothing quite like an exciting question time! I can assure members of this place that the government is looking closely at the feedback and considering how the feedback on the proposed network can be improved, based on what we have heard from Canberrans. In due course I will be very pleased to release the report detailing the feedback that we have received from Canberrans about the network and the changes made to the network based on this feedback once the government has made final decisions about the 2019 network.

Further details will be provided, including timetables once they have been developed. But of course you cannot develop timetables until you actually have the network. We will have more to say about the massive investment Labor is making in public transport with the aim of encouraging all Canberrans to use public transport. (Time expired.)

Australian Labor Party—conference

It is well known that members of the right faction of your party staged a dramatic walk-out of the ACT Labor Party conference on the weekend, in response to behaviour and decisions that have been described as "unruly and lawless". Chief Minister, what decisions were made at the recent ACT Labor Party conference that will become government policy?

MADAM SPEAKER: Mrs Kikkert, again I think that under standing order—

Mr Hanson interjecting—

MADAM SPEAKER: Excuse me, did you have a point on the point of order, Mr Hanson?
