danger to all road users. They help make our streets more amenable to neighbourhood activities.
The work aligns with wider efforts to address road safety under the framework of the ACT road safety strategy and action plan.
Roads ACT has put significant effort into engaging the community and developing plans to achieve these outcomes, and will continue to progress this good work.
I present the following paper:

Question resolved in the affirmative.
Crimes Legislation Amendment Bill 2012 (No 2)
Debate resumed from 29 November 2012.
Clause 1 agreed to.
Remainder of bill, by leave, taken as a whole.
MR CORBELL (Molonglo—Attorney-General, Minister for Police and Emergency Services, Minister for Workplace Safety and Industrial Relations and Minister for the Environment and Sustainable Development) (10.47), by leave: I move amendments Nos 1 and 2 circulated in my name together and table a supplementary explanatory statement to the amendments [see schedule 1 at page 1385].
The Crimes Legislation Amendment Bill 2012 (No 2) amends a number of pieces of legislation to address a number of issues that have arisen and to make key improvements to the operation of the criminal law in the ACT. On 29 November last year this bill was presented to the Assembly. The amendments proposed by the bill impact a wide range of areas of the criminal law, including drug and property offences and sexual offences.
The explanatory statement accompanying the bill provides a detailed explanation of these proposed amendments. However, earlier in this sitting year I circulated additional government amendments that are required to address two issues that have arisen since the bill was tabled last year. I will deal with each of these issues.
