that, and we need to do it an orderly and sensible way. But we need to do it, and so I cannot support the removal of those sorts of sentences from the motion. I look forward to continuing this discussion. I look forward to working with colleagues as we develop a pathway to zero net emissions. I commend my motion to the Assembly.

Estimates 2017-2018—Select Committee

Membership

MADAM SPEAKER: I have been notified in writing of the following nominations for membership of a Select Committee on Estimates 2017-2018: Ms Cody, Mr Coe, Ms Le Couteur, Mr Pettersson and Mr Wall.

Motion (by Mr Gentleman) agreed to:

That the Members so nominated be appointed as members of the Select Committee on Estimates 2017-2018.

Standing orders—suspension

MR RATTENBURY (Kurrajong—Minister for Climate Change and Sustainability, Minister for Justice, Consumer Affairs and Road Safety, Minister for Corrections and Minister for Mental Health) (11.49): I move:

That so much of the standing orders be suspended as would prevent order of the day No 1, Executive business—Crimes Legislation Amendment Bill 2017, being determined this sitting.

As I flagged on Tuesday when I introduced this bill, the intent was to debate it today because of the urgency of dealing with this matter. As I also indicated on Tuesday, it is regrettable that this bill needs to come forward in this way, but there has been an administrative error, and the sooner that is sorted out the better.
