(6) The Government is not aware of any examples of this nature.

(7) Options to reduce freight emissions into the ACT will be explored as part of the freight strategy. The National Transport Commission has completed research into measures to lower carbon emissions from freight transport at http://www.ntc.gov.au/filemedia/bulletins/OptionstocutfreightcarbonemJul08.pdf. Because freight is about supply chains, emissions reduction measures are generally progressed at the national or inter-jurisdictional level.

(8) The ACT Government has not made a formal submission to the Federal Government regarding the development of High Speed Rail, but meets regularly with the study High Speed Rail team.
