MR BERRY: Mr Jensen does not seem to understand that extra pools cost extra money. If he hangs around public administration a bit longer, he will grow to understand that. It costs a little extra to provide extra pools. The Government, in its wisdom, decided to opt for a variable-depth pool to bring the cost of that facility down but, at the same time, ensure that a quality community facility is provided for the people of Tuggeranong.

Office of Sport and Recreation : Hackett Primary School

MR STEFANIAK: My question is also to Mr Berry in his capacity as Minister for Sport. Now that Mr Wood has announced that the Hackett Primary School will not be used to house the suggested small educational complex, I ask the Minister again: Will he relocate his Office of Sport and Recreation to Hackett?


Ms Follett: I ask that further questions be placed on the notice paper, Mr Speaker.

West Belconnen - Proposed Planning Variation

MR WOOD: Mr Speaker, I can provide some elaboration on the answer that I gave to the question that Mr Moore asked. The reasons that the draft variation advertisements were withdrawn last Saturday were precisely as he explained, and they were withdrawn on the authority of the Secretary to the Department of the Environment, Land and Planning.

Canberra Bowling Club

MR WOOD: With your permission, Mr Speaker, I will elaborate a little on the answer that I gave to Mr Collaery about the visits of Mr Whalan and any of the people whom he was representing. I know that Mr Collaery is anxious about that, so I want to be precise. I met, by chance as it were, Mr Whalan. He thereupon brought me a group of people on the Thursday that he had expected those variations to be tabled. The reason that they were not tabled is that, of necessity, the proper thing to do was for me to consult with my colleagues. That occurred on the following Monday, and the executive minute was not signed until after that event.
