Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2012 Week 8 Hansard (24 August) . . Page.. 3729..
(2) What is the number of registered vehicles in the ACT that are classified as (a) A, (b) B, (c) C and (d) D rated.
Mr Corbell: The answer to the member's question is as follows:
(1) I am advised that in order to change the source of determining green vehicle ratings (used as a basis for duty payable on cars) away from the Green Vehicle Guide (GVG), amendments would be required to the following instrument:
* DI2010-133 - the disallowable instrument made under section 139 of the Taxation Administration Act 1999, which sets the duty rate applied to an application for registration of a motor vehicle as categorised by the GVG.
For completeness, section 208 (3) of the Duties Act 1999 would also possibly require amendment as this section includes a reference to the GVG in an example of an instrument and this reference would be redundant and could be misleading if a different instrument or guide was used.
It is also anticipated that changes may need to be made to the vehicle registration system, rego.act, to enable green vehicle ratings to be obtained from a source other than the GVG.
(2) As at 1 May 2012 the number of currently registered vehicles with a green vehicle rating were: A = 2,472 B = 9,190 C = 29,333 D = 6,352
