Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 1996 Week 13 Hansard (5 December) . . Page.. 4469 ..
MR HUMPHRIES: I am sure, Mr Speaker, that one day Mr Moore's house will be heritage listed for other reasons. The suggestion was made to me a few weeks ago. I have asked officers of the Heritage Unit to investigate it. I hope to be able to make a decision on that early next year. I have to consult with my colleagues, particularly the Minister for Urban Services, about issues such as rebates on water rates; but I think the idea is a good suggestion. Although this does not affect gardens, do not forget also that with the opening of the Canberra Cultural Centre, hopefully in about 12 months' time, we will see a capacity to house some heritage objects of the Territory which are presently in private ownership but which might be better under public control. However, acquiring a garden for the sake of preserving it is a much bigger exercise. I am not sure that that can be contemplated, but I will make a statement in due course if that suggestion can be taken on.
Mrs Carnell: I ask that further questions be placed on the notice paper.

MR SPEAKER: I present, for the information of members, Auditor-General's Report No. 10 of 1996, entitled "Implementation of 1994 Housing Review".
MR HUMPHRIES (Attorney-General) (3.26): Mr Speaker, I ask for leave to move a motion authorising the publication of the Auditor-General's report.

That the Assembly authorises the publication of Auditor-General's Report No. 10 of 1996.
Question resolved in the affirmative.
