that better meet the needs of the community; and promotes integration and cohesion across the system.

Additionally, there are three other ideas from the challenge that are being explored. Active work is underway to test the potential for a campaign on reducing the stigma of seeking help when relationships are not okay. This idea could enter into a pilot phase in the second half of 2018, depending on the outcome of the initial testing.

In addition to testing ideas from the first hub challenge, the Office of the Coordinator General for Family Safety is in early discussions around the next hub challenge. The second challenge may commence in late 2018 and focus on financial support and housing options for people experiencing domestic and family violence. I look forward to talking more about this work as it continues.

Mr Barr: Madam Speaker, further questions can be placed on the notice paper.

Supplementary answers to questions without notice

Land—rural property acquisition

Land—Molonglo stage 3

Crime—motorcycle gangs

MR GENTLEMAN: Regarding Mr Milligan’s question yesterday about the acquisition of Fairvale, I seek to make the following clarification. On 12 November 2015 the lessee of block 491/517 Stromlo, known as Fairvale, applied to the Planning and Land Authority under section 299 of the Planning and Development Act 2007 to surrender part of the land in the lease over that property. Under section 299(2), the Planning and Land Authority agreed to accept the surrender of part block 491 Stromlo. The process to surrender a crown lease under the Planning and Development Act 2007 is separate from, and distinct from, the power granted to the Planning and Land Authority to subdivide parcels of land.

In regard to Mr Hanson’s request for me to table the documents relating to the EIS exemption for Molonglo, I confirm that I will table relevant documents at a later date once all the information has been collated.

Madam Speaker, in responding to an answer in question time today about serious criminal gangs, I may have misspoken. As the Chief Police Officer has said publicly, the total number of members associated with ACT chapters of these criminal gangs is estimated at approximately 60 people.

Land—rural property acquisition

MS BERRY: Yesterday, I was asked the question:

… has the Suburban Land Agency received a breach of lease notification from the planning directorate regarding the lack of land management agreements?

The answer to that question is: no.
