Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2010 Week 06 Hansard (Tuesday, 22 June 2010) . . Page.. 2151 ..


MR SPEAKER: Order! Mr Smyth!

MS GALLAGHER: in the ACT. The one project—

Mr Smyth: You got more money out of Howard than you have—

MR SPEAKER: Order!

MS GALLAGHER: that we continue to lobby on very strongly—and I would welcome the opposition support for this—

Mr Smyth: Constitution Avenue? What happened to Constitution Avenue?

MR SPEAKER: Mr Smyth!

MS GALLAGHER: is the Majura Parkway. We need the Majura Parkway.

Mr Smyth: Money for the torch relay?

MS GALLAGHER: We need and would not mind bipartisan support for it.

MR SPEAKER: Order! Treasurer, one moment, thank you. Stop the clocks. Mr Smyth, I have asked you to stop intervening probably half a dozen times already today. You are now warned. Treasurer, you have the floor.

MS GALLAGHER: I have finished. They were not listening anyway.

MR SPEAKER: Ms Porter, a supplementary question?

MS PORTER: Minister, how do our infrastructure and capital works compare with all of the capital works that were completed under the previous government, that is the Liberal government?

MS GALLAGHER: I know that the opposition are going to love the end-of-year figures for capital works delivery when they come out, because they will show a massive improvement on previous years and will show that the processes that we have put in place to manage our capital works investment, to drive the economy through our own investments, are actually working.

What is good for the budget is good for the city, and you will see that in the end-of-year results. I know that it does not really go with the lines that you have been trying to run for the last year, but it will show significant improvements in government processes.

MR SPEAKER: A supplementary, Mr Seselja?

MR SESELJA: Thank you, Mr Speaker. Treasurer, what input, if any, did Treasury have in the development of the widely panned infrastructure plan?
