. The proposed development site is currently the subject of a Public Environment Report. Once completed, the report will become the basis of a round table conference in which representatives of all major interests in the proposal will be invited to participate. Progress of the Belconnen Soccer Club development proposal is dependent on the outcome of these processes.

. The interest of petitioners in conveying their views to the Legislative Assembly regarding the Belconnen Soccer Club development proposal is appreciated.

ACT Legislative Assembly

CANBERRA ACT 2600

Dear Mr Speaker

Thank you for your letters enclosing the petitions lodged by Mr Wayne Berry MLA on 19 and 26 October 1995 concerning the services and sale of Kippax Health Centre.

As part of the 1995/96 budget I announced that the government will sell Kippax and Melba Health Centres.

I can assure you and the members of the Assembly that this government has no intention of reducing the availability of community based services. Health care centres have an important role in the delivery of these services but a range of venues will need to be utilised if we are to meet the challenges of the 90's.

The Kippax Health Centre mostly accommodates private practitioners and will be sold as a going concern. The government believes that a private owner will be just as effective at managing the building and the community is likely to see a development of services.
