Tuesday, 19 February 1991


MR SPEAKER (Mr Prowse) took the chair at 2.30 pm and read the prayer.


The Clerk: The following petition has been lodged for presentation, and a copy will be referred to the appropriate Minister:

Tuggeranong Swimming Pool

To the Speaker and members of the Legislative Assembly for the Australian Capital Territory.

The petition of certain residents of the Australian Capital Territory draws to the attention of the Assembly: that the residents of Tuggeranong are without adequate public swimming facilities.

Your petitioners therefore request the Assembly to: urgently establish a public, all weather, Olympic standard swimming pool at the Tuggeranong Town Centre.

By Mr Jensen (from 1,289 citizens).

Petition received.


Planning Authorities

MS FOLLETT: My question is to Mr Kaine, in his capacity as Minister for planning. I ask Mr Kaine: What planning protection will exist for Canberra roads in the period between the cessation of the City Plan and the introduction of the Territory Plan?

MR KAINE: I understand, Mr Speaker, that Mr Langmore has made some statement on this matter today. I have not had time to examine the consequences of the assertions that he makes, whether it is even true that there will be a gap which is likely to cause problems. The Government has appointed a permanent planning authority because it was recognised that that needed to be done, in order to make sure that there was no gap in authority in terms of planning in the ACT. I will have to look at the matter.
