from residents and interested MLAs. Given all the comments opposite, I am surprised that Mr Smyth has not made his submission already in relation to the draft variation. Perhaps he will; perhaps he will surprise us. Of course, if he has not lodged one now and he does lodge one in future I will take it that is because I have prompted him to do so.
The other steps that will happen in the planning include, of course, the application of interim effect. Draft variation 317 does now have interim effect. That ensures that any proposed changes that are lodged prior to the completion of the territory plan variation process must be consistent with the proposed changes. That is very important. Of course, residents and other interested individuals or organisations have until 20 May to make a comment or suggestion or provide other feedback in relation to the draft variation.
MADAM SPEAKER: Supplementary question, Mr Hanson.
MR HANSON: Minister, can you confirm what instigated this master planning process? In fact, was it a resolution of this Assembly based on a motion from Mr Smyth?
MR CORBELL: I think it would be fair to say that what really instigated this process were the views and interests of the people of Kambah and Tuggeranong, who were expressing a view about this. I must say that the only real representations I had from members in this place when the master planning process got underway were from my colleagues Ms Burch and Mr Gentleman. I have not had anything from Mr Smyth.
Ms Gallagher: I ask that all further questions be placed on the notice paper.
Answer to question on notice
Question No 76
MR COE: Madam Speaker, under standing order 118A I seek an explanation as to why question No 76, which I enquired about on Tuesday, still has not been answered in spite of the response on Tuesday being that I would receive it yesterday.
MR RATTENBURY: As I undertook to Mr Coe on Tuesday, I did in fact receive the response to Mr Coe’s question on Wednesday lunchtime. I signed it during the lunchbreak on Wednesday and submitted it before coming to question time. So beyond that I am unable to answer where it has got to, Mr Coe. But it was submitted before question time on Wednesday, as I undertook.
Supplementary answers to questions without notice
ACTEW Corporation Ltd—management
MS GALLAGHER: Yesterday in question time Mr Coe asked me around whether or not I would release or table the agenda for the ACTEW special general meeting to be held on Monday. I table the agenda now:
