do note, of course, that business exits happen for a number of reasons including insolvency but also the sale of businesses.
MR SPEAKER: Mr Coe, a supplementary question.
MR COE: Minister, what action are you taking to ensure that businesses in the ACT are positioned to withstand the likelihood of failure, including insolvency?
MR BARR: Maintaining a strong economic policy, Mr Speaker, and sound fiscal management.
MR DOSZPOT: Minister, in August 2008 your government released a document called Capital Development. This document said that a number of action plans would be developed. Minister, when will the business and industry action plan be released by your government?
MR BARR: In April 2012 in conjunction with the clean economy strategy.
MR SPEAKER: A supplementary, Mr Doszpot.
MR DOSZPOT: Minister, why has it taken three years without any evidence of the business and industry action plan being promulgated up until now?
MR BARR: It hasn’t, Mr Speaker.
MR SPEAKER: Are there any matters arising from question time?
MRS DUNNE: Mr Speaker, I just wanted to clarify questions that Mr Coe and I asked about the old Ginninderra police station. I wanted to clarify for the information of the minister that we were not seeking documents from Galilee. We were seeking documents that were lodged with Housing ACT—sorry, Barnardos. We were not seeking NGO documents. We were seeking documents from Housing ACT.
