Reporting date

MS BURCH (Brindabella) (10.39): I seek leave to move a motion relating to the reporting date for the Standing Committee on Planning, Environment and Territory and Municipal Services inquiry into annual and financial reports 2014-15.

Leave granted.

MS BURCH: I move:

That the resolution of the Assembly of 29 October 2015, which referred specified annual and financial reports for the calendar year 2015 and the financial year 2014-2015 to the standing committees, be amended at paragraph (4) after "standing committees are to report to the Assembly on financial year reports by the last sitting day in March 2016 and on calendar year reports by the last sitting day in November 2016" by inserting "except for the Standing Committee on Planning, Environment and Territory and Municipal Services, which is to report to the Assembly by the last sitting day in April 2016".

Question resolved in the affirmative.

Motion (by Mr Gentleman) agreed to:

That Mr Hinder be appointed to the following general purpose standing committees:

Autonomous vehicles

Ministerial statement

MR BARR (Molonglo—Chief Minister, Treasurer, Minister for Economic Development, Minister for Tourism and Events and Minister for Urban Renewal) (10:41): There is a simple fact about autonomous or driverless cars, and that is that the first cars are already in showrooms and are on the roads today. The spectrum of automation is very broad. For example, I do not think anyone in the Assembly or the community today would find cruise control at all remarkable. At the other end are cars or other vehicles that need no human intervention at all.
