  • Ms O'CONNOR question to PREMIER, Mr HODGMAN
     
    [10.09 a.m.]
    Yesterday at a function at David Walsh's outstanding Museum of Old and New Art you sat next to the businessman whose family refused your Government's request for permission to alter the Federal monopoly deed to allow MONA to establish its high rollers casino. How did you feel sitting next to Greg Farrell? A bit awkward, especially after, in 2008, you described the monopoly as a mates deal?
  • Ms O'CONNOR question to MINISTER for STATE GROWTH, Mr GROOM
     
    [10.15 a.m.]
    Tasmanians now know that developers have their eyes on the art school, the Treasury building and the St. Johns Street offices in Launceston. Can you confirm that the Office of the Coordinator-General has asked the Crown Lands section of your other department for a full list of crown land in Tasmania that may be made available to private developers? If so, will you provide that list to the House?
  • Ms O'CONNOR question to MINISTER for STATE GROWTH, Mr GROOM
     
    [10.12 a.m.]
    In the last sitting you misled the House over what was revealed to be a secret plan to hand over the Hunter Street School of Art to private developers. Can you now tell the House which private developer has expressed an interest in turning the historic art school into a hotel? What discussions have you had with the potential developer about the art school's future?
