Questions without notice
ACT Health—SPIRE project
MR COE: My question is for the minister for health. Minister, will you please table in the Assembly, by the close of this sitting week, all of the briefs that you have received regarding the SPIRE project?
MS FITZHARRIS: I will take that question on notice.
MR COE: Further to this, minister, by the close of this sitting week will you include a verbal update to the Assembly on the state of the SPIRE project?
MS FITZHARRIS: Yes, I will do that before the close of this sitting week.
MRS DUNNE: In that briefing, minister, can you explain the basis on which you say that the construction of SPIRE will begin in 2020? Can you table the drink coaster on which the SPIRE policy was written?
MS FITZHARRIS: Yes, I will detail elements of the timing of that project and I will treat with the contempt that it deserves the second part of Mrs Dunne’s question.
Housing—new housing strategy
MS LE COUTEUR: My question is to the minister for housing and relates to the 15 per cent of new buildings in the indicative land release program that will be affordable under the newly released housing strategy. Minister, can you advise the Assembly of the proportion of public, community and affordable-purchase housing that will make up this 15 per cent of affordable housing in new greenfield and infill developments?
MS BERRY: Those numbers will be decided year on year, based on need, as well as the capacity of affordable and community housing providers to build them.
MS LE COUTEUR: In that case, Minister, can you provide us with indicative figures for the 2019 land release program?
