Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2022 Week 10 Hansard (Tuesday, 18 October 2022) . . Page.. 3162 ..
I have also been out at Stromlo; I have been out riding there with a lot of different people. I was at a meeting with CORC last week, and we had a really good briefing from the managers—the Stromlo and arboretum managers. It has been really good to get some information out there, because I think with over 4,000 users there, we have got a really broad community, and a lot of them feel like they have not been directly involved and, maybe, they do not know what is going on. It is great to see a call for more consultation, so that is one of the things that I will be bringing on in my motion.
It is really great to see this community petition come forward, and it is really good to see more government work and attention in this area. It is such a great sport; it is so much fun. We have so much potential out there, and we have such great opportunities to make this better and to make sure that the choices we are making are right for the area, right for our environment and right for all the user groups and the people who will be using it in future.
Question resolved in the affirmative.
Justice and Community Safety—Standing Committee
Scrutiny report 22
MR CAIN (Ginninderra) (10.08): I present the following report:
Justice and Community Safety—Standing Committee (Legislative Scrutiny Role)—Scrutiny Report 22, dated 17 October 2022, together with a copy of the extracts of the relevant minutes of proceedings and a revised copy of the extracts of the relevant minutes of proceedings for Scrutiny Report 21.
I seek leave to make a brief statement.
MR CAIN: Scrutiny report No 22 contains the committee’s comments on 30 pieces of subordinate legislation, proposed amendments to one bill, including an explanatory statement to the amendments, and three government responses. The report was circulated to members when the Assembly was not sitting. I commend the report to the Assembly.
Work health and safety—Dickson shoring collapse
MS CHEYNE (Ginninderra—Assistant Minister for Economic Development, Minister for the Arts, Minister for Business and Better Regulation, Minister for Human Rights and Minister for Multicultural Affairs) (10.09): I want to take this opportunity to inform the Assembly and Canberrans of the details behind the construction incident that occurred early last week, to set out the actions taken so far in respect of that incident, and to outline the powers available to Access Canberra when it comes to ensuring compliance with our building and construction laws and regulations.
