Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 1998 Week 6 Hansard (2 September) . . Page.. 1775 ..
Papers and Ministerial Statement
MR SMYTH (Minister for Urban Services): Mr Speaker, for the information of members, I present the schedule of lease variations and change of use charges for the period 1 April 1998 to 30 June 1998 and the schedule of leases granted for the same period pursuant to the Land (Planning and Environment) Act 1991. I ask for leave to make a short statement.
MR SMYTH: Section 216A of the Land (Planning and Environment) Act 1991 specifies that a statement be tabled in the Legislative Assembly each quarter outlining details of leases granted by direct grant, leases granted to community organisations, leases granted for less than market value and leases granted over public land. The schedule I have tabled covers leases granted for the period 1 April 1998 to 30 June 1998. I have also tabled two other schedules in relation to variations approved and change of use charges for the same period.
Included in the table are five leases granted in the previous quarter and one in the July to September 1997 quarter. These leases are with the Commissioner for Housing and, due to an administrative oversight, were omitted from the previous schedule. A record of all new leases and applications to vary crown leases is available for public inspection at my department's shopfront at Dame Pattie Menzies House, 16 Challis Street, Dickson.
MR HUMPHRIES (Attorney-General, Minister for Justice and Community Safety and Minister Assisting the Treasurer): Mr Speaker, I present, pursuant to standing order 83A, an out-of-order petition lodged by Ms Tucker from 115 citizens concerning the funding cuts to the Institute of the Arts.
MR BERRY (3.14): I move:
(1) the Assembly notes the Chief Minister's commitment made to the CPSU in the lead up to the ACT Legislative Assembly election - "The Carnell Government has always made it clear the Liberals will allow redundancies only if the workload goes. They have never supported job loss alone. The current enterprise agreements requires union agreement to anything other than voluntary redundancies and we propose to put that same clause in the new agreements.";
