Legislative Assembly for the ACT: Week 6 Hansard (22 June) . . Page.. 2304..
MR WOOD (continuing):
after all, there is not much competition amongst the Liberals in Molonglo. But if you do come back, you have done one backflip, so do another backflip. When you have the opportunity to see things in Australia or overseas, take that opportunity and do not stick to any decision that you can get it all from the internet.
Mr Stanhope: Mr Speaker, I ask that further questions be placed on the notice paper.
Supplementary answers to question without notice
Gungahlin Drive extension
MR WOOD: Relevant to an earlier question-which is relevant, Mrs Dunne-I indicated before with respect of Gungahlin Drive that officers were going to the court. They have been there and they have been through there. It was pretty quick. Officers have met with Justice Madgwick and he has offered no objection to work recommencing. So they can recommence tomorrow, with the exception of some 900 metres of forest.
Answers to questions on notice
Question Nos 1481, 1482, 1506, 1555
MR CORNWELL: Mr Speaker, under standing order 118A I request an explanation from the following ministers concerning unanswered questions: the Minister for Health, question No 1481; the Minister for Planning, question No 1482; Chief Minister, question No 1506; and Chief Minister, question No 1555.
MR STANHOPE: I am afraid I am not aware of those questions. I will certainly make inquires of my officials and answer them forthwith, Mr Cornwell.
MR CORBELL: I will need to check what those questions are about, Mr Speaker. I cannot recall them from the question number but I will endeavour to provide the answer as soon as possible to Mr Cornwell.
