Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2018 Week 13 Hansard (29 November) . . Page.. 5090 ..


Due to recent changes to the committee's membership, as well as a number of concurrent reporting dates for inquiries that the committee was undertaking, the committee has resolved to table its inquiry into the future sustainability of ACT health funding out of session. The committee hopes to table this report as soon as possible after the last sitting day in 2018.

Question resolved in the affirmative.

Environment and Transport and City Services—Standing Committee

Proposed reference

MR BARR (Kurrajong—Chief Minister, Treasurer, Minister for Social Inclusion and Equality, Minister for Tourism and Special Events and Minister for Trade, Industry and Investment) (12.40): I move:

That the Standing Committee on Environment and Transport and City Services:

(1) further consider, and consult with the community on, a new Territory Coat of Arms; and

(2) report back to the Assembly by 6 June 2019.

The order of this pre-empts the government response to the standing committee's report, but one of their recommendations was that this matter be looked at. The government has agreed with that and seeks to refer the matter back to the standing committee for further engagement and consultation with the community on a new territory coat of arms.

We have a Canberra city coat of arms but we do not have a coat of arms for the Australia Capital Territory. This was identified by the committee in its report. The government has accepted that recommendation; hence this referral back to the committee to further consider and consult with the community on a new territory coat of arms and to report back to the Assembly by 6 June 2019.

Question resolved in the affirmative.

Administration and Procedure—Standing Committee

Report 8

Debate resumed from 25 October 2018, on motion by Mr Wall:

That the motion be agreed to.

MS CHEYNE (Ginninderra) (12.42): I move:

That all words after "That" be omitted, substitute:

"(1) Recommendation No 1 be adopted, commencing 1 January 2019, with the exception of the following changes to the recommended amendments:
