Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2010 Week 01 Hansard (Thursday, 11 February 2010) . . Page.. 333 ..

Liberal Party’s attention that the complaint that they refer to in relation to a consumer complaining that his bedroom lights did not work after a trader installed insulation—

Mr Hanson: Mr Speaker, the question was very specific. It related to the tabling of a document—this document and all other documents. We just need confirmation directly from the Attorney-General that he will be tabling this and all related documents by close of business today.

MR CORBELL: Mr Speaker, I am explaining the document in question and I will come to the rest of the answer after I have explained the document in question. The complaint that is referred to in this document was made prior to June 2009. When did the commonwealth insulation program start? 1 July 2009. I have clearly indicated to this place that the government has received no complaints about dodgy installation since the commonwealth program commenced. This complaint was received some time before the commonwealth even commenced their program.

Mr Seselja: Are you going to table the documents or not?

Mr Hanson: Mr Speaker, on a point of order—

MR SPEAKER: Stop the clock.

Mr Hanson: the question that was asked by the member was very specific, about the tabling of this and all other documents related to the home insulation program. That was asked to be tabled by the close of business today, and the minister has failed to respond to that question.

MR CORBELL: Mr Speaker, the government does not have any documents about the home insulation program because we do not run the home insulation program. I think the members opposite are going to need to be a bit more specific with their request. The government does not have documents in relation to the home insulation program because we do not run the home insulation program.

Ms Gallagher: I ask that all further questions be placed on the notice paper.

Supplementary answers to questions without notice

Planning—service stations

MR BARR: Yesterday in question time Ms Le Couteur asked me as a supplementary question if I could update the Assembly on redevelopment progress at some disused service stations sites, in particular Page, Latham and Rivett. In response, I can provide the following information.

In relation to the Page site, I am advised that the current lessee has been in possession of this property for just over three years. The lessee is entitled to seek an extension of time to the building and development covenants, as other ACT leaseholders are entitled to do. ACTPLA has previously considered and approved an application for an extension to the building and development covenants of the lease to facilitate the redevelopment of the site in the interests of the Page community.
