Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2018 Week 13 Hansard (29 November) . . Page.. 5108 ..


progress. Recent achievements include the release of the ACT housing strategy, the opening of the Gungahlin walk-in centre, the establishment of the office for mental health, and the ACT's continued progress towards our 100 per cent renewable electricity target by 2020.

I particularly acknowledge both of our Greens parliamentary colleagues for their shared commitment to delivering on the parliamentary agreement and for the constructive and principled approach they take to other issues that come before this chamber.

In this place we do not always agree on the best means to achieve an outcome and respective priorities can lead us to focus on different issues. But I consider this is always within the broader framework of the shared commitment to make Canberra fairer, more inclusive, more sustainable and more resilient. We see that through our parliamentary agreement and occasionally we even see that in a tripartisan way in this chamber.

On that happy note, I ask that all further questions be placed on the notice paper.

Answers to questions on notice

Question 1915

MRS DUNNE: Pursuant to standing order 118A, I ask the Minister for Planning and Land Management why he failed to answer question on notice No 1915, relating to rural leases in Narrabundah.

MR GENTLEMAN: My recollection is that I have signed off on that, so I will chase it up with my office to see why it has not arrived with Mrs Dunne.

MRS DUNNE: On the explanation: as of 1.30 today, when we last checked with the Clerk's office, it had not been received. The question was due on the 25th of this month, so could I ask for an explanation as to why it was not provided on time, under the standing orders?

MR GENTLEMAN: There was some information that was required that took some time to arrive in my office. As I said, my recollection is that I have signed off on it, so I will chase it up with my office to see why it has not arrived with Mrs Dunne.

MRS DUNNE (Ginninderra) (3.23): Pursuant to standing order 118A(c) I move:

That this Assembly note that the Minister for Planning and Land Management has:

(1) failed to provide an answer to question on notice No 1915 by the due date, that is, 25 November;

(2) failed to provide a satisfactory explanation for that failure; and

(3) failed to provide a satisfactory statement in relation to that failure, in accordance with standing orders.
