That the report be noted.
MR MOORE (11.41): Mr Speaker, I was not quite ready for this; I did not think it was going to come up. This report made a series of recommendations with reference to passenger cars. I believe that the report asked for the Government to respond to a series of its recommendations by December 1995. The real issue is whether or not we are appropriately using government cars in the ACT. I understand that the Government has taken the attitude that a reduction in the use of cars can be achieved and should be achieved in line with the recommendations of the Auditor-General and the Public Accounts Committee, and I hope that that is exactly what will be achieved. At the same time, I think it is important for us to recognise that service within the Territory is what government is about and, if we get to the stage where we do not have enough vehicles to deliver service, we may well have increased our problem.
