Legislative Assembly for the ACT: Week 5 Hansard (25 May) . . Page.. 2252..
(4) See (3)
(5) I am unable to comment on such claims for compensation. These are matters which should be considered by the persons wishing to make a claim and their legal adviser. It would be a matter between the parties.
(6) When ACTPLA did attempt to take action under the dirty block legislation the lessees successfully applied to the ACT Supreme Court for a stay of any action by ACTPLA until their appeal to the Supreme Court had been disposed of.
ACTPLA can take no further action at this stage given the decision of the Supreme Court.
Aged care accommodation
(Question No 1475)
Mr Cornwell asked the Chief Minister, upon notice, on 1 April 2004:
In relation to advice from the recently appointed Case Manager for older person's accommodation at the Council on the Ageing (COTA) meeting on 16 February 2004 that a report was to be out at the end of that month to say what had been done and what would be done in the future regarding the situation with aged care accommodation in the A.C.T. and that copies of this report would be available, could a copy of this report be provided to Members of this Assembly; if not, why not?
Mr Stanhope: The answer to the member's question is as follows:
The Case Manager is reporting to me regularly and continuing to maintain very strong communications with COTA and service providers.
I am advised there was no commitment made at the February meeting to a different form of report.
Senior Executive Working Group
(Question No 1476)
Mr Cornwellasked the Chief Minister, upon notice, on 1 April 2004:
Further to his response to Question on notice No 1306 providing details of the Senior Executive Working group (SEWG), if the SEWG's primary task is to oversee the implementation of the Building for Our Ageing Community strategy, then how can it be said that they have no impact on the endorsement or planning of future land releases for aged care facilities in the A.C.T.?
Mr Stanhope: The answer to the member's question is as follows.
In my response to the Member's earlier question (QON 1306), I did not say that the Senior Executive Working Group (SEWG) would have no input to planning of future land releases for aged care facilities in the A.C.T. Naturally individuals in the group would have input, but it is not the role of this Group to approve land release for aged care facilities.
