Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 1999 Week 11 Hansard (19 October) . . Page.. 3260..


MS CARNELL (continuing):

Thank you for your constant support for new strategies for dealing with drugs and drug taking in the ACT. I appreciate your willingness to look for solutions rather mouth the platitudes that others do so glibly.

That is the end of that letter. I think it shows categorically that the strategy approach we are taking, that embracing a broad range of different approaches, has the capacity to have very real outcomes. That is what this Government is about.

Question resolved in the affirmative.

MINISTERIAL ARRANGEMENTS

MS CARNELL (Chief Minister): Mr Speaker, for the information of the Assembly, when Mr Moore leaves question time today I will take questions on his portfolio area.

QUESTIONS WITHOUT NOTICE

Bruce Stadium

MR STANHOPE: Mr Speaker, my question is to the Chief Minister. Can the Chief Minister tell the Assembly what progress has been made in mediation between the Government and the Bruce Stadium marketing consortium that, despite a deal worth $1.8m, so spectacularly failed to deliver more than $190,000 of the $12m revenue its contract promised?

MS CARNELL: No, I cannot.

MR STANHOPE: I ask a supplementary question. Mr Speaker, it would be pleasing to know whether or not the Chief Minister has any intention of giving us the information requested in that question.

MR SPEAKER: Supplementary questions are asked without preamble, please.
