Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2006 Week 5 Hansard (9 May) . . Page.. 1381..


MS GALLAGHER (continuing):

paradise; just a couple of weeks in South Korea. I was interested to see whether some of the information Mr Seselja is using in his writings on men and the issues facing men may have been informed by the Moonies, but we will not get the details of how his trip over there has benefited him in his performance as a parliamentarian because it was a junket that was being paid for, not—

Mr Mulcahy: Mr Speaker, I wish to raise a point of order. As fascinating as this dissertation is, what Mr Seselja may have done has absolutely no relevance to the supplementary question. So I think the minister ought to be asked to return to the subject.

MS GALLAGHER: Mr Speaker, it does have relevance to the question. I am merely raising a question about a trip overseas funded by the Moonies that could have assisted Mr Seselja in some of his thinking around his policies for men and how they relate to women. Unfortunately, we will not be able to receive that information; there will not be a study report about this trip, as the junket was paid for by the Moonies.

Mr Stanhope: I ask that all further questions be placed on the notice paper.

Paper

Mr Corbell presented the following paper:

Legal Profession Bill 2006—Revised printed Bill.

Land (Planning and Environment) Act

Paper and statement by minister

MR CORBELL (Molonglo—Attorney-General, Minister for Police and Emergency Services and Minister for Planning): For the information of members, I present the following paper:

Land (Planning and Environment) Act, pursuant to subsection 229B (7)—Statement regarding exercise of call-in powers—Development application No. 200503431—Blocks 13, 24 and 25 (part) Section 46 and Block 25 (part) Section 47 Mawson, dated 2 May 2006.

I ask for leave to make a statement in relation to the paper.

Leave granted.

MR CORBELL: On 7 March this year I directed, under section 229A of the land act, the ACT Planning and Land Authority to refer to me development application No 200503431. On 6 April this year I advised the authority that I had decided to determine this application. This advice was notified on the ACT legislation register. On 2 May this year I approved the application using my powers under the act.

The application allows for the expansion of the Woolworths supermarket at Southlands, Mawson, and an associated lease variation to permit the development. The proposal will allow an extension of 2,070 square metres to the existing Woolworths supermarket, including off-site engineering works, new and relocated services and a new public car
