Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2019 Week 11 Hansard (Wednesday, 25 September 2019) . . Page.. 3896 ..


MRS JONES (Murrumbidgee) (5.07): I move a further amendment to Mr Rattenbury’s amendment:

Add new paragraph (3)(c):

“(c) report back to the Assembly on how the Minister will resolve the issue of proximity to the men by the last sitting week this year.”.

The amendment that will be circulated is exactly the same as the previous amendment, but it changes “paragraph 3(b)” to “paragraph 3(c)” so that the minister can provide this broad report, which he has covered in paragraph 3(b), which states:

report back to the Assembly on all policies and procedures to support women in the AMC …

Then he can also report back to the Assembly on how he will resolve the issue of proximity to the men by the last sitting week this year.

Mrs Jones’s amendment to Mr Rattenbury’s proposed amendment negatived.

Mr Rattenbury’s amendment, as amended, agreed to.

Original question, as amended, resolved in the affirmative.

Climate strategy 2019-25

MR GUPTA (Yerrabi) (5.09): I move:

That this Assembly:

(1) notes that the ACT Climate Change Strategy 2019-25:

(a) is implementing measures that support all Canberra households in the ACT and is improving the liveability of our entire city in response to global climate change;

(b) outlines how achieving 100 percent renewable electricity, a 40 percent reduction in emissions by 2020, and zero net emissions by 2045 will assist households to save on energy costs;

(c) clearly outlines why it is in the long-term interests of all ACT residents to have a comprehensive strategy in place to combat and adapt to climate change, and that why simply ignoring the climate change danger is no longer tenable;

(d) works in conjunction with the ACT Government’s new Living Infrastructure Plan to increase the comfort and enviable lifestyle in our suburbs by keeping our streets, parks and houses cool, healthy and liveable, with measures to ensure adequate tree cover and assess local needs for managing heat;

(e) is implementing new approaches to increasing productivity of key transport corridors;
