ENVIRONMENT, COMMUNICATION, INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY AND THE ARTS LEGISLATION COMMITTEE - 04/11/2003 - ENVIRONMENT AND HERITAGE PORTFOLIO - Parks Australia

Senator WONG —Mr Cochrane, I have some questions in relation to Point Nepean. Has Parks Australia ever expressed an interest in taking responsibility for management of any portion of Point Nepean?

Mr Cochrane —No.

Senator WONG —Are you aware that the member for Flinders claimed in the parliament that Parks Australia would be gifted the land?

Mr Cochrane —I am not aware of that.

Senator WONG —That is not on the basis of any position that Parks Australia has ever taken?

Mr Cochrane —No.

Senator WONG —Parks Australia has never been approached by any area in government in relation to taking over management responsibility for Point Nepean?

Mr Cochrane —No. We have provided advice on its value as potentially part of the national reserve system but not as an owner or manager.

Senator WONG —You can't help me as to where Mr Hunt got the information that he put out in his flier?

Mr Cochrane —I have no idea.

Senator WONG —Thank you very much. I have some questions on Christmas Island but, given the time, Chair, I propose to put them on notice.

CHAIR —Thank you. They have to be in by tomorrow, of course.

Senator WONG —Nothing further for Parks Australia.

CHAIR —I thank Parks Australia for appearing.
