STATEMENT

FOR PRESS

THE ACTING MINISTER ..................... FOR THE

CAPITAL TERRITORY

inns

The Acting Minister for the Capital Territory, the Honourable

Eric L. Robinson, announced today that he had received advice

from the Minister for Environment, Housing and Community

Development that an environmental impact study had indicated

that the ACT Electricity Authority's proposal to extend its

subtransmission system in North Canberra had been adequately

investigated. Therefore, a public enquiry in this instance is

not justified. .

Mr Robinson said that this decision in no way pre-empted

further discussions on the housing development proposals

currently under consideration between the National Capital

Development Commission and organisations that have an interest

in the infill programme.
