today by those they thought represented them and those they thought understood what good planning is and making sure that we get it right for future generations by doing it properly today. It has not been done properly today, and that is a shame because this is another opportunity lost. As Mr Hargreaves so eloquently put it, the coalition of the Greens and the Labor Party today is crushing the desires, the wishes and the aspirations of the Calwell community.

Emergency Services Agency—flooding

MR SESELJA: My question is to the Minister for Police and Emergency Services. Minister, as you would be aware, the new ESA headquarters at Fairbairn were inundated in December 2010 and the construction site for the ESA training facility at Hume was also flooded. Minister, were you ever advised that either or both of the Fairbairn and Hume sites are on a flood plain?
