MR CORBELL: I have answered that question here in question time many times. We know what the price impact is per week; it is 50c per week per electricity customer currently. That is the price impact and I have answered that question many times before.

What this government is doing is investing in support to reduce costs for the poorest households in our community, for those who are most vulnerable.

Mr Seselja interjecting—

MR SPEAKER: Mr Seselja!

MR CORBELL: Of course Mr Seselja has no response to this measure because he knows that the government has called him on the simplistic assertions and the simplistic concerns he raises about cost of living, because we know that the cost of living pressures are most acute on low income households. What measures have the Liberal Party proposed to respond to that? They have not. (Time expired.)

Mr Stanhope: I ask that all further questions be placed on the notice paper.

Answer to question on notice

Question No 1589

MS HUNTER: In accordance with standing order 118A, I request an explanation from the Treasurer about an unanswered question of mine, question No 1589.

Ms Gallagher: In relation to?

MS HUNTER: In relation to ethical investment.

MS GALLAGHER: Sorry, Ms Hunter, I have not even seen that cross my desk, so I will go back and chase up where that is. I was unaware it was overdue.

Gungahlin Drive extension

Debate resumed.

MS LE COUTEUR (Molonglo) (3.26): The original motion and the amendment are both fairly largely factual discussions of the Gungahlin Drive extension. I will start with some reflections on Mr Coe’s speech. Mr Coe said that the Greens were anti-Gungahlin and that the Greens were anti a road to Gungahlin. This is of course a misrepresentation of the Greens’ position. The Greens’ position on transport to Gungahlin is quite clear: Gungahlin deserves something better than the Gungahlin Drive extension.

We strongly supported and continue to support light rail. I am disappointed that Mr Coe is not here to hear what I am going to say, but if he was possibly a little bit older he might remember the history of how we ended up with the Gungahlin Drive
