Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2017 Week 06 Hansard (Thursday, 8 June 2017) . . Page.. 2083 ..


This bill today is an important step in the government’s commitment to ensuring Canberra has a modern and sustainable public transport network. The light rail will play a key role in making Canberra a sustainable city with a revitalised city centre. I commend the bill to the Assembly.

Debate (on motion by Mr Wall) adjourned to the next sitting.

Canberra Hospital—AECOM risk assessment report

Order to table—extension of time

MS BURCH (Brindabella) (10.41): I move:

That, notwithstanding the provisions of standing order 213A, and in relation to the order to table the AECOM Risk Assessment Report on the Performance of Infrastructure at The Canberra Hospital:

(1) the correspondence from the Chief Minister to the Independent Legal Arbiter be provided to Mrs Dunne and Mr Rattenbury for response;

(2) any response from Mrs Dunne or Mr Rattenbury be provided to the Independent Legal Arbiter through the Clerk’s Office by 5pm Friday, 9 June 2017;

(3) a copy of any response to the Independent Legal Arbiter to also be provided to the Chief Minister, Mrs Dunne and Mr Rattenbury; and

(4) the Independent Legal Arbiter is to complete his report by 5pm Monday, 19 June 2017.

This is a fairly straightforward motion. It refers to a 213A motion or activity that is in place at the moment. It will allow the exchange of correspondence between those interested parties and for the independent arbiter to complete his report by the close of business on 19 June. I commend the motion to the Assembly.

Question resolved in the affirmative.
