Appropriation Bill 2010-2011

[Cognate paper: Estimates 2010-2011—Select Committee report—government response]

Debate resumed from 29 June 2010.

Proposed expenditure—Part 1.7—Department of Land and Property Services—$8,610,000 (net cost of outputs) and $24,708,000 (capital injection), totalling $33,318,000.

MR SESELJA (Molonglo—Leader of the Opposition) (8.10): It is worth talking a little bit about the activities of the Land Development Agency in this line. We have looked at a number of areas in the past where the Land Development Agency has engaged in what we would regard as wasteful spending. I think that there is still evidence of some of that, although I would say that is not as egregious as we have seen in the past. We do see what is effectively a monopoly supplier of land engaging in spending significant amounts of taxpayers’ money on things such as advertising.
