Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 1999 Week 11 Hansard (19 October) . . Page.. 3263..
MR QUINLAN: Crystal clear, Mr Speaker. Might I be permitted a small preamble to my supplementary question for the benefit of other members? What was said was that we have blown $14.4m and we will not be getting it back.
Ms Carnell: I take a point of order, Mr Speaker. That is not what I said.
MR SPEAKER: Do you have a supplementary question?
MR QUINLAN: I certainly do.
MR SPEAKER: In that case, the Chief Minister will be able correct any misunderstanding.
MR QUINLAN: Will the Chief Minister table a supplementary - - -
Mr Humphries: Mr Speaker, I raise a point of order. Mr Quinlan asked a question and Ms Carnell answered it.
MR SPEAKER: He is asking a supplementary question. I will allow it. It is a technical matter.
MR QUINLAN: Will the Chief Minister table in this place the support documentation for the devaluation of the Bruce Stadium assets?
MS CARNELL: We tabled the Bruce Property Trust financial statements last week in this place. I have explained it to Mr Quinlan. I am very happy to take him aside and explain line by line, if he would like that, how RAT tests are applied to non-current assets that are for profit in government circles. If Mr Quinlan would like that explanation, I am more than happy to give it.
MR CORBELL: Mr Speaker, my question is to the Chief Minister. Can the Chief Minister explain to the Assembly why the former director of the Office of Strategy and Public Administration in her department has been seconded to the Commonwealth Department of Immigration and Multicultural Affairs as an executive coordinator?
MS CARNELL: Mr Speaker, because we announced that we had done it. That particular job in the ACT Government no longer exists in the restructure. We believe it was a good outcome for both governments. The person involved is a very capable officer, and I think it is very appropriate that wherever possible we give our officers an opportunity for experience in other places.
