Ministerial arrangements

Questions without notice

Trade unions—CFMMEU

MR COE: I have a question for the minister for workplace safety and industrial relations. Minister, on 18 August, delegates to the ACT Labor Party conference, including you, voted unanimously to support a motion calling the charges against a CFMMEU official baseless. Minister, have you or any other government minister made representations to the federal government or ACCC to end the investigation of the CFMMEU for price fixing and cartel behaviour?

MS STEPHEN-SMITH: I certainly have not, and I am not aware that anyone else has either. My understanding is that they have not.

MR COE: Minister, has any official from the CFMMEU made representations to you about trying to end the ACCC investigation?


MR WALL: Minister, has any approach been made by members of the CFMMEU to any minister to try to approach the commonwealth or the ACCC about this investigation?

MS STEPHEN-SMITH: Not to my knowledge, Madam Speaker.


MADAM SPEAKER: Members, before I call the next question without notice, I welcome to the ACT Assembly a delegation from Sarawak state public accounts committee. Welcome to Canberra and the Australian Capital Territory Legislative Assembly. I hope you enjoy your afternoon.

Questions without notice


MS LE COUTEUR: My question is to the minister for housing and relates to the City Renewal Authority and Suburban Land Agency housing target determinations.
