(4) Have any low maintenance ovals been brought back to full maintenance since Labor took office in 2001; if so, which ovals; if not why not.

The decision as to which ovals are low or full maintenance is based on the type and level of demand the grounds satisfy, and there is now general acceptance in the community of the level of provision of irrigated full-maintenance sportsgrounds.
