Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2018 Week 03 Hansard (Tuesday, 20 March 2018) . . Page.. 720 ..

Of course, as members will know, the Stromlo Forest Park master plan will ensure that this area is kept on track to provide great facilities for future residents and visitors to the area. Stromlo Forest Park boasts world-class mountain bike trails, a running track, equestrian trails, spectator stands and parts of the container village that have been relocated from West Basin.

The 50-metre pool will have a constant depth of two metres for 30 metres and the movable pool boom moves 30 metres so that it can accommodate an international standard men’s and women’s water polo field. It will also be able to host swimming competitions and will have fittings for dive blocks so that it can host short-course swimming competitions.

There are two large doors adjacent to the 50-metre pool to accommodate triathlon transition into the pool, with a transition zone outside the 50-metre pool hall—something that I know is of interest to Ms Cody. The large doors and concourse space will also allow for temporary seating to be brought in to host larger events. The 50-metre pool can also accommodate underwater hockey and canoe polo.

The government will shortly be commencing detailed feasibility planning for the establishment of an accommodation facility within the park to provide the many interstate park visitors with opportunities to stay close to the action.

Crime—motorcycle gangs

MR HANSON: My question is to the Attorney-General. Attorney-General, I refer to the Canberra Times front page report that states:

A man shot in Chifley early Monday in a suspected bikie-related attack sought medical assistance at a service station.

Acting superintendent of criminal investigations Shane Scott said the incident was “brazen and targeted.” … Given it was 6.30 am, the potential for people to be out and about in that area is quite high,” he said. … “Several vehicles were damaged in the shooting.”

Attorney-General, do you have an update on this latest incident?

MR RAMSAY: I thank the shadow attorney-general for his question, noting that updates from Policing would primarily be a matter for the Minister for Police and Emergency Services, not me. I do not have an update on that matter.

MR HANSON: Attorney, have you received information on whether other bikie gangs are moving into the ACT, notably the Finks?

MR RAMSAY: Not in relation to that matter, no.

MRS JONES: Attorney, will your government reconsider introducing consorting or organised crime control laws, given that the bikie war continues to endanger the community?
