Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 1996 Week 12 Hansard (20 November) . . Page.. 3869 ..

MR OSBORNE (continuing):

by Mr McDermott and the other superintendents around the Territory. I know that our superintendent in Tuggeranong, Mr Alan Castle, is doing an absolutely tremendous job and has the support of the whole community. This is not about attacking our AFP. It is not about attacking the Police Minister. I think that in trying circumstances Mr Humphries has always been very helpful with my office on police matters. This is about being accountable. This is about giving us what we all want, as set out in a unanimous report. I am very pleased that this motion has received the support that it has.

Question resolved in the affirmative.

Sitting suspended from 12.33 to 2.30 pm


MR DE DOMENICO (Minister for Urban Services): Mr Speaker, I wish to inform the Assembly that the Chief Minister will be absent from question time today attending an official engagement to mark the visit to Canberra of the President of the United States of America. In Mrs Carnell's absence, questions normally addressed to her as Chief Minister, Treasurer or Minister for Health and Community Care should be addressed to me.


Aquatics Inquiry

MR WHITECROSS: Mr Speaker, my question without notice is to the Minister for Sport, Mr Stefaniak. Minister, can you advise the Assembly what is the relationship between Leisure Australia, which currently manages the Civic, Tuggeranong and Erindale pools, and the company LRM Australia, which is currently carrying out an inquiry for the Government into aquatics, which I understand includes consideration of all water-based sporting and recreational activities in the ACT, including the possible need for a Belconnen pool?

MR STEFANIAK: In terms of the exact relationship, if there is one, I will have to take that on notice, Mr Whitecross; but, if you are trying to connect anything untoward between the two, I do not think you will have much luck there.
