Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 1996 Week 6 Hansard (22 May) . . Page.. 1604 ..

(f) the duplication of Drakeford Drive north of Isabella Drive;

(g) the extension of the cycle path network;

(h) the expansion of the Landcare, Parkcare programs, especially for weed control;

(j) the refurbishment of run-down local shopping centres; and

(k) the renewal of outdated playground equipment.

MR WOOD (12.19), in reply: This motion seems to have general support. I hope that it is authentic support, real support, and that we will see extra money allocated to tasks of the sort that I suggested, so that our public works program is increased and more employment is being undertaken.

Mr Berry: To make up for those cancelled ones.

MR WOOD: Yes; I hope that there are no cancelled projects. I hope that there is a significant amount of new money provided. This will require changes to the next two years' budgets at least of this three-year budget that we are told we have. I wait with anxiety to see such announcements in the near future.

Question resolved in the affirmative.

Sitting suspended from 12.20 to 2.30 pm
