Technology Act 1987; and transitional arrangements to ensure that those employers and trainees whose contracts of training have still to be completed are not disadvantaged when the Vocational Training Authority Act is repealed. The transitional arrangements are not expected to apply beyond 12 months after the repeal of the 1989 Act. I commend this Bill to the Assembly.

PLANNING AND ENVIRONMENT - STANDING COMMITTEE

Report on Watson, Section 61, Block 8 (Former Starlight Drive-In Site)

Debate resumed from 20 June 1995, on motion by Mr Moore:

That the report be noted.

MR HUMPHRIES (Attorney-General and Minister for the Environment, Land and Planning) (11.04): Mr Speaker, on 26 April this year I referred a redevelopment proposal on the old Starlight Drive-In site to the Standing Committee on Planning and Environment. This was done in the interests of keeping the committee informed about developments in the area. On 20 June 1995 the committee tabled its report in the Assembly. The committee made three recommendations specifically addressing the enforcement of lease conditions in relation to serviced apartments, the sale of units off the plan and the deferral of a decision on the development of the site until the Board of Inquiry into the Administration of ACT Leasehold has tabled its report. Mr Speaker, I would like to table the Government's response to the recommendations, and I am pleased that the Government can respond positively to all of the recommendations.

Members will be aware that the Starlight Drive-In site has been the subject of consideration by the Board of Inquiry into the Administration of ACT Leasehold. Whilst it is not clear whether the board will make any specific recommendations relating to the Starlight Drive-In site, I support the Planning and Environment Committee's view that no decision should be made on the application currently under consideration by the ACT Planning Authority and the Environment and Land Bureau until the board reports.
