Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 1996 Week 1 Hansard (21 February) . . Page.. 117 ..

MR DE DOMENICO: Mr Speaker, once the information is available, once the unions start making use of the ticketing system, I will make sure that that information is provided to Mr Whitecross.

Mr Berry: Mr Speaker, there seems to be an area of confusion here that the Liberals do not seem to be able to get around. Mr De Domenico has made the decision. He made the decision on the basis of information collected. What we want is a copy of the information upon which he made the decision.

Mr Humphries: Mr Speaker, on the point of order: Mr Berry is trying to ask the same question in a fifth different way, or ask a fifth supplementary question.

Ms Follett: No, it is the same question.

Mr Humphries: It is not. With respect, the question has been answered. If you do not like the answer, that is your problem. They have no right to continue asking this question. Ms Tucker wishes to ask a question and she should have the opportunity.

MR SPEAKER: Under the guise of points of order. I call Ms Tucker.

Transport Reform Advisory Committee

MS TUCKER: My question is also to the Minister for Urban Services, Mr De Domenico, and it is in relation to the Transport Reform Advisory Committee. Last year it was recommended in the Estimates Committee report that representatives with expertise in health and the environment should be added to this group. Can you inform the Assembly whether this has happened, and when we are likely to see some recommendations or a report from this group?

MR DE DOMENICO: I thank Ms Tucker for the question. I will provide Ms Tucker with the names of the people on the Transport Reform Advisory Committee. As soon as that group makes recommendations I will make sure that she has access to their recommendations as well.

Ms Tucker: Could you actually answer the question? Do you have an idea of a timeframe? Was there specifically a person representing the environment and health interests on the group? If you cannot answer that question I have a supplementary question.

MR DE DOMENICO: I can answer that question. There are people on the group like June Healy, who represents the elderly community of the ACT. There are other people with expertise in public transport, including environmental public transport, from interstate as well on that group, Ms Tucker. As I said, we believe that there will be some recommendations flowing through as that group meets from time to time. No specific recommendation has been made by that group to the Government as yet.
