Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2016 Week 06 Hansard (Wednesday, 8 June 2016) . . Page.. 1820 ..
MS FITZHARRIS: I did not neglect to mention that in my media statements. It was clear in the budget papers which were released yesterday and I spoke about the Weston line being a line that was requested by the community because public transport patronage in the Weston Creek and Molonglo Valley area has certainly risen.
MADAM SPEAKER: Supplementary question, Mrs Jones.
MRS JONES: Minister, regarding buses in the area, was funding provided in this year’s ACT budget to implement a peak hour service for Crace to the city as promised by the ACT government last September?
MS FITZHARRIS: That money has already been included in the transport Canberra and city services budget in this current financial year but, as was explained late last year by the previous minister, there have been delays in the rollout of that service. I expect to see that in the next couple of months—that direct service from Crace—and in addition the direct service from Florey and Latham also to get underway.
MADAM SPEAKER: A supplementary question, Mrs Jones.
MRS JONES: Minister, was funding provided in this year’s ACT budget to implement new direct services from Florey and Latham during peak hours, as promised by the ACT government last September?
MS FITZHARRIS: As I indicated in my previous answer, that money is already in the budget.
ACT public service—Land Development Agency
MR COE: Madam Speaker, my question is to the Minister for Economic Development. Under section 9 of the Public Sector Management Act, public servants are required to:
report to an appropriate authority—
(i) any corrupt or fraudulent conduct in the public sector that comes to his or her attention; or
(ii) any possible maladministration in the public sector that he or she has reason to suspect.
Minister, have any such reports been made about conduct in the LDA?
MR BARR: Not that I am aware of, Madam Speaker, but I will seek further information in relation to Mr Coe’s question.
MADAM SPEAKER: A supplementary question, Mr Coe.
MR COE: Minister, are you aware of any maladministration or possible maladministration in the LDA regarding land deals?
