MR DUBY: I thank Mrs Grassby for the question. As Mrs Grassby is aware, following the collapse of the Shelley group in the early part of last year, the Government has implemented a policy of monitoring, in cases of project management, the way in which subcontractors and people who are employed on the project receive their pay. It has in place a system in which payments are made through the project manager to the subcontractors.

Mrs Grassby has asked me, I believe, whether I am aware of exactly what checks are made.

Ms Follett: What monthly checks - - -

MR DUBY: I, personally, cannot say what checks are made, because clearly I am not involved in the day-to-day administration of that area. But I am satisfied that all the necessary checks that are required are being made by the appropriate project manager.

MRS GRASSBY: I have a supplementary question, Mr Speaker. If these monthly checks are undertaken by the New South Wales Government for their contractors, why is it not being done in the ACT?

MR DUBY: In regard to that supplementary question, Mr Speaker, I would refute the allegation in the question that those checks have not been made.

Bruce Stadium

MRS NOLAN: Mr Speaker, my question is to the Deputy Chief Minister. What is the present situation, Deputy Chief Minister, regarding the negotiations with the Canberra Raiders relating to Bruce Stadium?

MR COLLAERY: Mr Speaker, I had intended to make a ministerial statement on the matter this week. Unfortunately, negotiations, although effectively resolved in the ACT between the Raiders and the Government, have now moved to an unexpected phase with the New South Wales Rugby League. There are some more complex issues to resolve, regarding a lengthy memorandum from the New South Wales Rugby League. Those matters are taking some further days to resolve, and I hope to be in a position to inform the house and the public of the situation next week.

Mr Kaine: Mr Speaker, I request that any further questions be placed on the notice paper.
