of Regulatory Services will publicise the new requirements, including writing to all licensed members of the security industry, displaying posters about the reforms at the ORS shopfront and including further information in their newsletters.

This bill provides the final step in implementing the first stage of the national reforms to the private security industry in the ACT. It provides the foundation for ensuring a competent and sustainable guarding sector of the security industry, a sector in which Canberrans can have confidence. The bill provides the necessary safeguards to do this in a way that I believe protects the rights and interests of all concerned.

I thank other members for their contribution to the debate and the officers who have prepared this legislation to this point. I commend the Security Industry Amendment Bill to the Assembly. (Quorum formed.)

Question resolved in the affirmative.

Bill agreed to in principle.

Leave granted to dispense with the detail stage.

Bill agreed to.

Road Transport (Safety and Traffic Management) Amendment Bill 2011

Detail stage

Clauses 1 to 3.

Clauses 1 to 3 agreed to.

Clause 4.

MR COE (Ginninderra) (12.19): I move amendment No 1 circulated in my name [see schedule 1 at page 4409].

The definition of the shortest practicable route is not included in the current bill and it is useful for subsequent amendments. For that reason I have moved the amendment.

MS BRESNAN (Brindabella) (12.19): I will speak to the substance of this amendment when Mr Coe moves an amendment in the next section. We will be supporting this particular amendment and the substance of it. As I said, I will talk to that when we next address it.

MS GALLAGHER (Molonglo—Chief Minister, Minister for Health and Minister for Industrial Relations) (12.20): I come quite late to this debate. The government will be supporting Mr Coe’s first amendment. I am advised that the beginning and end points of the length of road that will be used to calculate the shortest practicable distance between the two detection points will be physically marked on the road to assist in camera calibration. It should therefore be possible to accommodate this amendment in the regulations by reference to those road markings.
