Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2015 Week 09 Hansard (Thursday, 13 August 2015) . . Page.. 2870 ..


MS BERRY: None.

MADAM SPEAKER: Supplementary question, Mr Wall.

MR WALL: Minister, what discussions did you have with Mr Barr and/or Mr Rattenbury regarding the proposed land swap and the government’s position on this issue?

MS BERRY: The only conversations I have had with Mr Barr or Mr Rattenbury are—with Mr Barr, I had one after Mr Barr mentioned on ABC radio that he was looking at a proposal for the Griffith site for Mocca. I had a conversation with Mr Barr about that, whether that was a proposal that the government could look at. I have had a similar conversation with Mr Rattenbury.

MADAM SPEAKER: A supplementary question, Ms Lawder.

MS LAWDER: Minister, why did the government propose to establish a childcare centre on the Telopea Park site, given a proposal to establish a preschool on that site was rejected?

MS BERRY: I am not the minister responsible for that. I think that that would be a question for EDD.

MADAM SPEAKER: A supplementary question, Ms Lawder.

MS LAWDER: Minister, what future involvement will you or your directorate have in finding a suitable site for Mocca?

MS BERRY: The ACT government will continue to work with the stakeholders, as the ACT government will do with all organisations. It will continue to have a conversation with Mocca about the proposals.

Mr Hanson: Why didn’t they want you in their photo, then?

MS BERRY: I was in a photo with Mocca.

Mr Hanson interjecting

MADAM SPEAKER: Order! This is irrelevant, Mr Hanson.

Asbestos—government response

MR SMYTH: My question is to the Chief Minister. Chief Minister, on 19 February this year two out-of-order petitions were tabled in the chamber in relation to Mr Fluffy loose-fill asbestos issues. This included a paper petition with 1,089 signatures and an electronic petition with 1,283 signatures. Chief Minister, while not obliged under the standing orders to respond, will you respond to these petitions?
