Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2003 Week 8 Hansard (20 August) . . Page.. 2922..


MR WOOD: One of the reasons-and I think quite a reasonable reason-why you are getting those calls is that you're generating them; you're out there and you're doing things.

Mrs Burke: So we're making them up?

MR WOOD: Don't misunderstand me. You are-

Mrs Burke: Oh, Minister!

MR WOOD: If I may speak: you are seeking responses from that community.

MR SPEAKER: Minister, direct your comments through me.

MR WOOD: You are generating responses from that community. Can you understand that?

Mrs Burke: So, it's their fault.

MR WOOD: I didn't say you were inventing them; I say you are generating them.

Mrs Dunne: On a point of order, Mr Speaker: I draw your attention to standing order 42. I ask that the minister address the chair, rather than Mrs Burke.

MR SPEAKER: Thank you, Mrs Dunne.

MR WOOD: I would much rather address the chair. If Mrs Burke sends out a survey to large complexes and says, "Please advise me of any problems you have,"yes, I think you do get a response. You're not the first member of this place to do so. Please keep doing so. I'm pleased for you to be doing so. We continue to respond.

Green power

MS DUNDAS: My question is to the Minister for Environment. I note that the ACT government plans to increase its purchasing of green power to 100 per cent by 2008 off a base of 10 per cent in 2001. Can you tell me what proportion of ACT government power currently being consumed is actually green power?

MR STANHOPE: No, I cannot, but I am happy to take the question on notice.

MR SPEAKER: Is there a supplementary question or a requirement for supplementary information?

MS DUNDAS: I would like some supplementary information, thank you, Mr Speaker. Minister, can you tell me whether territory-owned corporations are also being asked to meet the target of 100 per cent for green power by 2008?

MR STANHOPE: I am happy to take the question on notice.
