slots in the revised sitting pattern. This motion and the next one are procedural motions that formalise what has been agreed.

Question resolved in the affirmative.

Legislative Assembly

Committees—reporting dates

Motion (by Mr Gentleman) agreed to:

That the resolution of the Assembly of 2 December 2020, as amended 11 February, 30 March and 22 April 2021, which established general purpose standing committees, be amended by inserting paragraph (3A) as follows:

“(3A) calendar and financial year annual and financial reports for 2020-2021 stand referred to the relevant standing committee for inquiry and report by 31 May 2022 of the year after the presentation of the report to the Assembly pursuant to the Annual Reports (Government Agencies) Act 2004;”.

Planning, Transport and City Services—Standing Committee

Reporting date—amendment

MS CLAY (Ginninderra) (11.21): I move:

That the resolution of the Assembly of 5 August 2021 which altered the reporting date for the Standing Committee on Planning, Transport and City Services’ inquiry into the Road Transport (Safety and Traffic Management) Amendment Bill 2021 (No 2), be amended by including the Road Transport Legislation Amendment Bill 2021 in the inquiry and the committee to report to the Assembly by 30 November 2021.

We have two road safety bills before our committee. One was referred to us and we resolved to inquire into it on 1 July, and the other was referred to us and we resolved to inquire into it on 12 August. Both bills deal with very similar content. They both deal with road safety, with a particular view towards protecting vulnerable road users. Our committee has decided to run an inquiry and hearings into both at the same time. We are therefore seeking an extension of the reporting date for the first bill, so that we can report on both bills to the Assembly by 30 November.

Question resolved in the affirmative.

Drugs of Dependence (Personal Use) Amendment Bill 2021—Select Committee

Reporting date—amendment

MR CAIN (Ginninderra) (11.22): I move:

That the resolution of the Assembly of 11 February 2021 which established the Select Committee on the Drugs of Dependence (Personal Use) Amendment Bill 2021, be amended by omitting “by the last sitting day in October 2021” and substituting “by 30 November 2021”.
