Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 1996 Week 13 Hansard (3 December) . . Page.. 4321 ..
MR HUMPHRIES: Mr Speaker, the Land (Planning and Environment) Act 1991 requires a schedule of leases that were issued by direct grant during a quarter to be tabled in the Assembly. The schedule I have just tabled covers leases granted for the period 1 July 1996 to 30 September 1996. I have also tabled two other schedules in relation to variations approved and betterment payments for the same period. In addition, I have tabled an addendum to the schedule of leases granted for the period 1 October 1995 to 31 December 1995, namely, two leases granted in the AMTECH Estate in Symonston. These leases were not tabled during the first sitting period of 1996 as expected, due to an administrative oversight which was not detected until recently. Arrangements have now been put in place to identify and report on leases where BASET has had carriage of all negotiations concerning the grant of leases. A record of all new leases and applications to vary crown leases is available for public inspection at my department's shopfront in the John Overall Offices at Braddon. Mr Speaker, I also note that the betterment payments, or change of use charge payments, for the period 1 July 1996 to 30 September 1996 have also been tabled.
MR STEFANIAK (Minister for Education and Training and Minister for Housing and Family Services): Mr Speaker, pursuant to section 14 of the Annual Reports (Government Agencies) Act 1995, I present the following paper:
Annual Reports (Government Agencies) Act - Children's Services Council - Report for 1995-96.
The report was circulated to all members when the Assembly was not sitting, as it was inadvertently omitted from the Department of Education and Training and Children's, Youth and Family Services Bureau report for 1995-96. I regret that oversight. Mr Speaker, I also present, pursuant to section 19B of the Children's Services Act 1986, the following paper:
Children's Services Act - Official Visitor's Report for 1995-96, dated 27 June 1996.
MR SPEAKER: Members may recall that during the adjournment debate on the morning of 22 November a series of papers relating to the leases granted for car parking areas adjacent to the Woden Plaza at Phillip were presented to the Assembly. There were 29 papers presented. They included copies of letters, tables, interdepartmental minutes and advices. The copies were dated between 1989 and 1994 and are listed at pages 508 and 509 of the proof minutes of proceedings for 21 November 1996.
