In closing, the committee would like to thank the previous Minister for Planning, Mr Corbell, and the stakeholders who assisted the committee during the course of this inquiry. As with the previous report, I would like to thank my fellow committee members, Ms Mary Porter and Mr Zed Seselja, and committee secretary, Hanna Jaireth. Mr Deputy Speaker, I commend the report to the Assembly.

Question resolved in the affirmative.
