Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2002 Week 13 Hansard (21 November) . . Page.. 3930 ..

MR CORBELL: I have tabled the schedule of leases granted for the period 1 July to 30 September 2002 and two other schedules relating to variations approved, and change of use charges collected for the same period.

I also wish to table, for the benefit of members, a copy of the lease granted under disallowable instrument No 228 of 1997, by direct grant, to Zissis Nominees Pty Ltd over Block 10 Section 20, Watson. Section 216A of the Land (Planning and Environment) Act 1991 specifies that a statement be tabled in the Legislative Assembly 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.

Zissis Nominees Pty Ltd purchased a supermarket and butcher shop in the Watson local centre, and applied for the direct sale of Block 10 Section 20, Watson, to expand the existing supermarket. As members may be aware, the government is committed to the revitalisation of existing local centres, to offer the community more choice in meeting their consumer needs.

The land has been sold to Zissis Nominees Pty Ltd at market value. The Australian Valuation Office has determined a value of $105,000. It is considered that the direct sale of the land is in the public interest. This project will provide an improved supermarket and should enhance the viability of the local centre, strengthening its operations. There will also be local employment benefits generated by the development.

ACT WorkCover Annual Report 2001-02-Corrigenda (2)-Replacement pages 30 and 116

I ask for leave to make a short statement.

Leave granted.

MR CORBELL: The 2001-02 ACT WorkCover annual report was tabled in the Assembly on 26 September this year. The first matter in the corrigendum is the replacement of the table on page 30. The new table 1 includes the 2000-2001 data, which was intended for inclusion in this report. The second matter is at note 12 on page 116 of the annual report, in relation to the financial statements for the workers compensation supplementation fund.

Figures internal to the statement should have recorded the current HIH claims payable as $10,400,302, rather than the $18,466,302 indicated. Also, estimates of non-current HIH claims payable should be recorded as $42,260,000, rather than $38,194,000. These estimates were produced by the fund actuary on data available at the time, and the total
