Canberra spatial plan and sustainable transport plan
MR CORBELL (Molonglo—Attorney-General, Minister for Police and Emergency Services and Minister for Planning): I ask for leave to make a ministerial statement concerning the progress of the Canberra spatial plan and the sustainable transport plan.
Leave not granted.
MR CORBELL (Molonglo—Attorney-General, Minister for Police and Emergency Services and Minister for Planning) (3.42): I move:
That so much of the standing orders be suspended as would prevent Mr Corbell from making a ministerial statement.
The government advises the opposition parties when a ministerial statement is to take place. Unfortunately, Mrs Dunne and her staff did not attend the last government business meeting where this was raised. If they had attended they would have been told.
