Planning and Land Management-video (Question No 433)
Mrs Dunne asked the Minister for Planning, upon notice:
In relation to my FOI request to Planning and Land Management (PALM) in relation to a video on High Quality Sustainable Development (HQSD):
In December 2002 I made an FOI request seeking a copy of a video on HQSD shown at a planning briefing on Tuesday 17 December. On 10 January 2003 I received a decision from the authorised officer, formally refusing me the document on the grounds that no document was in the possession of PALM.
Given that the video, which reportedly depicted members of PALM staff dressed as the Village People singing a song about HQSD to the tune of "YMCA", was seen by at least 100 at the briefing at the Albert Hall on 17 December:
Was the segment on HQSD shown on 17 December part of a longer video;
When was the video or segment on HQSD made;
For what purpose was it made;
What was the cost of production;
If it no longer exists, when was it destroyed;
If it was destroyed, why was it destroyed;
If it was destroyed, was it done so in accordance with the Territory Records Act.
Mr Corbell: The answers to the member's questions are as follows:
