(10) Given that Environment ACT and the Fairbairn Park Control Council were in the middle of discussions to agree upon a long term noise regime and given that in your own draft policy Environment ACT has lumped in the National Capital Car Club with Fairbairn Park, why was that credit not taken from the National Capital Car Club instead of Fairbairn Park.
