QWN Sport—Cricket Australia

MR MILLIGAN: My question is to the Chief Minister in the absence of the Minister for Sport and Recreation. Chief Minister, what is the nature of the deal between the ACT government and Cricket Australia regarding international cricket matches being played in Canberra? Further to this, has the ACT government paid any money or agreed to pay any money for the hosting of matches?

MR MILLIGAN: Have the contractual terms been breached or did the contract not actually specify that games must be played in Canberra?

MR PARTON: You say that the agreement can be changed by mutual agreement. Did Cricket Australia simply tell you that there were no international matches here, or did you agree to it, for the summer ahead of this one?
