responses. The report was circulated to members when the Assembly was not sitting. I commend the report to the Assembly.
Planning and Urban Renewal—Standing Committee
Statement by chair
MS ORR (Yerrabi) (10.24): Pursuant to standing order 246A, I wish to make a statement on behalf of the Standing Committee on Planning and Urban Renewal relating to statutory appointments in accordance with continuing resolution 5A. I wish to inform the Assembly that during the period 1 January 2018 to 30 June 2018 the standing committee considered no statutory appointments.
Justice and Community Safety—Standing Committee
Statement by chair
MS LEE (Kurrajong) (10.25): Pursuant to standing order 246A, I wish to make a statement on behalf of the Standing Committee on Justice and Community Safety for the Ninth Assembly relating to statutory appointments in accordance with continuing resolution 5A.
Continuing resolution 5A requires standing committees that consider statutory appointments to report on a six-monthly basis and to present a schedule listing appointments considered during the applicable period. The schedule is required to include the statutory appointments considered and, for each appointment, the date the request from the responsible minister for consultation was received and the date the committee's feedback was provided.
For the applicable reporting period, 1 January 2018 to 30 June 2018, the committee considered a total of 22 appointments to nine statutory bodies. In those cases, the committee advised the responsible minister it had no comment to make on the appointments proposed.
The committee does highlight that it dealt with several items of advice in relation to a number of appointments where standard information required by committees in assessing and advising the executive on appointment was not provided in initial advice to the committee. This led to the committee reminding the minister on several occasions that the committee requires that information to properly discharge its responsibilities.
In accordance with continuing resolution 5A, I therefore table the following paper:
Justice and Community Safety—Standing Committee—Schedule of Statutory Appointments—9th Assembly—Period 1 January to 30 June 2018.
Estimates 2018-2019—Select Committee
MR BARR (Kurrajong—Chief Minister, Treasurer, Minister for Economic Development and Minister for Tourism and Major Events) (10.26): Madam Speaker, for the information of members, I present the following papers:
