(3) None of these people have been through the Drug and Alcohol Court (DAC).


Questions without notice taken on notice

Schools—modular learning centres

Ms Berry (in reply to a supplementary question by Mr Hanson on Wednesday, 10 February 2021):

There are currently 148 transportable units in place at 38 schools.

As the usage arrangements are unique to each school, it is not possible to quantify how many students are currently being taught in transportable learning environments.

Land—sales

Ms Berry (in reply to supplementary questions by Mr Coe and Mr Parton on Wednesday, 10 February 2021):

The ACT Government does not hold information on the specific reason why people decided to purchase land from the Suburban Land Agency (SLA). It is reasonable to assume there will be a variety of reasons that will influence a purchase decision, including the availability of the ACT and Commonwealth government stimulus measures.

Information about ACT Stamp Duty concessions and the HomeBuilder program is the responsibility of the ACT Revenue Office. The SLA is not able to quantify the portion of land sales in the current financial year that attracted support from government measures due to privacy requirements associated with data provided by applicants to the ACT Revenue Office. It is also noted that some HomeBuilder applications received by the ACT Revenue Office since 1 July 2020 may relate to land purchases completed in a previous financial year.

The HomeBuilder grant has a two stage application process. The first is the registering of interest (referenced as ‘applications’ below) and the second is the full application with documentation which is assessed before it is paid (referenced as ‘approved’ below).
