Questions without notice
Land—Dickson land swap
MR COE: My question is to the Chief Minister and Minister for Economic Development. I refer to media reports of 30 May on the Dickson land swap. The article claims:
A possible box of documents that may detail 40 meetings between senior ACT public servants and the Tradies Club over the Dickson land swap seems to have gone “missing” …
Chief Minister, has an internal investigation been conducted into the missing documents? If so, what did it find?
MR BARR: I am not aware of an internal investigation on this matter. I will seek advice from the directorate. It is not my directorate, as the Leader of the Opposition would be aware.
Mr Hanson interjecting—
MADAM SPEAKER: Mr Hanson, not today.
MR BARR: I am not in a position to comment any further at this point.
MR COE: Chief Minister, when were you first made aware of the possible missing documents and why are there apparently so few details regarding these meetings?
MR BARR: I was not aware that there was a box of missing documents. I am still not aware that there is a box of missing documents. There is a claim to that effect but it is difficult to ascertain at this point. I have not been privy to a lot of the conversations and discussions because I do not have portfolio responsibility in this area.
