MR SPEAKER: Supplementary question, Mr Smyth.
MR SMYTH: Minister, how much is this external review costing and is there a target of $10 million of savings?
MR HARGREAVES: I do not know whether it was Mr Pratt but somebody coughed and I missed the second half of the question. There was a dollar figure and I did not hear it.
MR SPEAKER: Could you repeat that, please, Mr Smyth?
MR SMYTH: How much is the review costing and has a target of $10 million been set for savings?
MR HARGREAVES: At the moment, I do not know the cost. I will endeavour to find that out. And no.
Gas-fired power station
MR STEFANIAK: My question is to the Minister for Planning. Minister, last week on 20 August, you stated that you had not asked officials to reconsider the use of block 20, section 23, Hume, for the Tuggeranong power station data centre. That is despite the fact that the Aboriginal heritage issues had all been solved and you had not been able to sell the land. Minister, why have you not proposed to ActewAGL that they reconsider use of the site for their proposal?
MR BARR: That question is directed to the wrong minister; I do not have responsibility for land sales.
MR SPEAKER: A supplementary question, Mr Stefaniak.
MR STEFANIAK: I will redirect that question to the responsible minister for land sales. Would you like me to read it again?
MR SPEAKER: The question was directed to Mr Barr, and it was in relation to land sales. Mr Stefaniak picked the wrong minister. He is now asking a supplementary question, and he wants it directed to the relevant minister. I think that is you, Chief Minister.
Mr Stanhope: So this is a supplementary question to me?
MR SPEAKER: Yes.
MR STEFANIAK: I will ask the question again, Chief Minister.
MR SPEAKER: If you wish.
Mr Stanhope: On a point of order, Mr Speaker, is this the question or a supplementary question?
