Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 1995 Week 03 Hansard (Tuesday, 30 May 1995) . . Page.. 561 ..


The final press release, which is dated 5 January and which refers to those matters, says:

Stage one of the rebuilding program, which should be complete by the start of term one this year -

that is 1995 -

involves creating two classrooms in the existing library area so that all classes can be accommodated at the school in 1995.

I am quite unable to account for the lack of progress on this matter. I find it totally reprehensible, because it was not for lack of decision-making or of funding by the previous Government. I seek leave to table those three media releases from the then Minister.

Leave granted.

MR CONNOLLY: I also wish to make a personal explanation under standing order 46.

MR SPEAKER: Yes; proceed.

MR CONNOLLY: In question time, Mr Kaine - again, I am sure, inadvertently - made the statement that I, as Health Minister, had done nothing to implement the recommendations of the Andersen review. In the last sitting period, the Minister for Health made a statement about progress on implementation of the Andersen review. That statement quite clearly set out the progress achieved to date and quite clearly showed that much of the first year's action had, indeed, taken place. So, your Health Minister can enlighten you as to the progress which I had made.

QUESTIONS WITHOUT NOTICE

Acton Peninsula

MRS CARNELL: Mr Speaker, in question time in the previous sitting I was asked to table the leases with regard to associations on Acton Peninsula. I have here the leases of those associations and organisations that have agreed that that is an appropriate course of action to take. I present the following papers:

Australian Defence Force Academy - Copy of lease, dated 12 October 1994; letter of acceptance, dated 15 December 1994; and authorisation for tabling, dated 25 May 1995.

Australian National University - Copy of licence agreement, dated 7 March 1994; and authorisation for tabling, dated 19 May 1995.
