Questions without notice

Planning—Brumbies lease variation

MR HANSON: My question is to the Chief Minister. On 6 January 2012 you signed the instrument to consider the application for approval of a lease variation for the old Brumbies site at Griffith. On 2 April 2013 the Labor government called in variation 307 to the territory plan and later you waived the lease variation for this development worth $7.5 million. The purpose of waiving the lease variation was supposedly to provide a windfall for the Brumbies and for local rugby for community purposes. Minister, who is in receipt of the $7.5 million of benefit that was intended for the Brumbies and local rugby?

MR BARR: The Brumbies and local rugby.

MADAM SPEAKER: A supplementary question, Mr Hanson.

MR HANSON: Minister, what safeguards did you put in place when you waived the LVC to make sure that the full $7.5 million has benefited the Brumbies and local rugby, and not a third party?

MR BARR: The government partnered with the Brumbies and the University of Canberra to deliver a new facility, a headquarters for the Brumbies, at the University of Canberra. That facility is complete and operational and the Brumbies are based there.

MADAM SPEAKER: Supplementary question, Mr Wall.
