Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 1999 Week 11 Hansard (21 October) . . Page.. 3414..


By Ms Tucker (continuing):

The site is highly diverse, with over 125 plant species. It provides Tuggeranong residents and school students with access to a site which provides excellent educational, research, conservation and social opportunities.

Given the huge land release planned for the Conder area, the lack of grassland sites in the area (notwithstanding the Eaglemont site which will be placed in reserve), and the national and local importance of the site, the proposed development is an act of unnecessary environmental destruction.

The petition supports similar submissions made to the Minister by a number of community groups.

Your petitioners therefore request the Assembly to not allow the proposed development and to adopt the alternative.

Petition received.

URBAN SERVICES - STANDING COMMITTEE

Reference - Out of Order Petition on Proposed Gungahlin Parkway Extension

That the terms of an out of order petition relating to a proposed eastern extension of the Gungahlin Parkway be referred to the Standing Committee on Urban Services to inquire and report as part of its inquiry into the proposals for the Gungahlin Drive Extension.

TERRITORY OWNED CORPORATIONS (AMENDMENT) BILL (NO 2) 1999

MR HUMPHRIES (Treasurer, Attorney-General and Minister for Justice and Community Safety) (10.34): Mr Speaker, I present the Territory Owned Corporations (Amendment) Bill (No 2) 1999, together with its explanatory memorandum.

Title read by Clerk.

MR HUMPHRIES: I move:

That this Bill be agreed to in principle.

This Bill amends the Territory Owned Corporations Act 1990 by removing the existing restrictions to the number of issued non-voting shares permitted for a territory owned corporation; removing the duplication inherent in existing reporting requirements in relation to statements of corporate intent and territory budget processes; and updating the terminology so that the Act complies with recent amendments to the Commonwealth's Corporations Law.
