    The Hon. MICHAEL GALLACHER: My question without notice is addressed to the Minister for Infrastructure. What value can the community place on the Government's commitment to the proposed Enfield intermodal terminal, given the Minister for Infrastructure thinks that the Freight Infrastructure Advisory Board report, which includes this project, does not fit within his grand plans and is therefore essentially worthless? Will the Minister now detail his plans and also indicate the rationale behind the Government's proposal to rename the Enfield terminal development to Chullora? Is the name change the clincher that secured the support of the honourable member for Strathfield?

    The Hon. MICHAEL COSTA: I do not want to debate whether it is good or not. We have made a number of observations about where the Government will go in terms of planning issues, and they will be released as part of the metropolitan strategy. So I will not comment on the matter until the metropolitan strategy is out for public discussion.
