Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2003 Week 2 Hansard (6 March) . . Page.. 796..


These allocations were provided in accordance with the Business Plan submitted by the Manuka Oval Management Company in December 2001 identifying an operating subsidy far in excess of the $150,000 would be required. According to the Business Plan an additional $162,000 in 2002/3 and $90,000 in 2003/4 and 2004/5 would be required to meet the government's obligation under the agreement. It is understood that the reason for the sought funding drop in the out years is due to alternative revenue streams becoming available at that time.
