on the long term and has the needs of people at its heart. To get there requires reform. My approach will be to pursue change in an inclusive and equitable way, always accounting for the varying needs of the community.

I look forward to providing further updates to the Assembly in the future about the progress in the transport reform portfolio. I present a copy of the statement:

Transport reform—Ministerial statement, 26 March 2015.

I move:

That the Assembly takes note of the paper.

Question resolved in the affirmative.

Justice and Community Safety Legislation Amendment Bill 2015

Mr Corbell, pursuant to notice, presented the bill, its explanatory statement and a Human Rights Act compatibility statement.

Title read by Clerk.

MR CORBELL (Molonglo—Deputy Chief Minister, Attorney-General, Minister for Health, Minister for the Environment and Minister for Capital Metro) (10.48): I move:

That this bill be agreed to in principle.

I am pleased to present the Justice and Community Safety Legislation Amendment Bill 2015. This bill is part of a series of legislation that makes amendments to laws in the Justice and Community Safety portfolio. While the amendments that this bill will make are minor and uncontroversial, they will improve the statute book and promote justice and community safety for the people of the territory.

This bill amends the Classification (Publications, Films and Computer Games) (Enforcement) Act 1995, the Commercial Arbitration Act 1986, the Coroners Act 1997, the Court Procedures Act 2004, the Electoral Act 1992, the Guardianship and Management of Property Act 1991, the Legal Profession Act 2006, the Public Trustee Act 1985 and the Utilities Act 2000.

The amendments to the Classification (Publications, Films and Computer Games) (Enforcement) Act are consequential to amendments which were made to the commonwealth Classification (Publications, Films and Computer Games) Enforcement Act 1995 in 2014. The commonwealth amendments will commence in stages during this calendar year.

The amendments to the commonwealth's classification act implemented a set of first tranche reforms based on the recommendations of the Australian Law Reform Commission in its report Classification—content regulation and convergent media.
