Schools—Catholic

MS LE COUTEUR: My question is to the Minister for Economic Development and is in regard to environmental assessments for the proposed Gungahlin Catholic secondary facility on Horse Park Drive. Why has the government not yet referred the Horse Park Drive site for an assessment under the commonwealth EPBC Act, and when will the referral be made?

MR BARR: My understanding is the referral has been made.

MR SPEAKER: Ms Le Couteur, a supplementary question.

MS LE COUTEUR: What is the expected time frame for the completion of the EPBC assessments and any other ACT environmental impact assessment for the Horse Park Drive site, and how will these time frames impact on the school’s expectation that construction will commence in 2012?
