Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2011 Week 04 Hansard (Wednesday, 6 April 2011) . . Page.. 1441 ..

The answer to that question is no; it is not true.

Energy—feed-in tariff

MR CORBELL: During question time yesterday Ms Bresnan asked me a question about modelling undertaken in relation to the feed-in tariff for medium scale energy generation and I committed to table the advice I received from the ICRC as soon as possible. I table the following advice for the information of members:

Energy feed-in tariff—Copy of letter to Mr Corbell, Minister for Energy, from Paul Baxter, Senior Commissioner, Independent Competition and Regulatory Commission, dated 30 March 2011.
