Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2002 Week 7 Hansard (5 June) . . Page.. 1978 ..

MRS DUNNE (continuing):

wanting is for the minister to put me, the opposition and the people of Gungahlin out of our misery.

MR SPEAKER: That would be out of order in the chamber!

MRS DUNNE: We could do it outside! I want them to put on the record a timetable that is less flippant than saying, "We will build it by the time we see it." This motion asks the minister to put on the table, by the close of business tomorrow, a more detailed program setting out the steps that must be taken to finish the environmental works and the engineering specifications, and vary the Territory Plan. If the minister can convince me and the members of the opposition that he is able to build his road by the timetable that he committed to, before the electorate, prior to the election, then the opposition will spend its time demonstrating to the people of Canberra why the western route is wrong.

MS DUNDAS (5.43): Due to the delays in members being made aware of the details of this motion, I move:

That debate be adjourned.

Community housing

MR WOOD (Minister for Urban Services and Minister for the Arts) (5.48): I move:

That the Assembly do now adjourn.

Mr Speaker, yesterday saw the release of the national social housing survey for community housing. I emphasise the words "community housing"-that sector. That survey showed that community housing tenants in the ACT have the highest satisfaction levels nationally. The 2002 survey, released a couple of days ago, shows that 85 per cent of respondents in the ACT said they were satisfied, or very satisfied, with the overall service provided by their housing organisation. This is an excellent result, especially when compared with the national average of 77 per cent.
