Call for submissions on Drone Delivery Systems in the ACT
23 Nov, 2018
The Standing Committee on Economic Development and Tourism is calling for submissions to its inquiry into drone delivery systems in the ACT.
Jeremy Hanson MLA, Chair of the Committee, said that, “the trial of drone deliveries in Bonython will end shortly and Project Wing, the company running the trial, has announced that it intends to begin deliveries to the suburbs around Mitchell. The Assembly has asked the Committee to look at a number of aspects of the trial, including the economic impact on the Territory, the environmental impact on residents and animals, regulatory oversight of the drones and information privacy.”
“The Committee would like to hear from all parties involved in, or affected by the trial, including residents, companies and regulators.”
On 2 November the Legislative Assembly referred the inquiry to the Committee. The full terms of reference for the inquiry are available on the Assembly’s website.
Written submissions should be lodged by close of business on 22 February 2019.
Once the Committee has received submissions it will hold public hearings.
Submissions should include your full name, postal address and telephone number.
Electronic lodgement is preferred. Additional information on the submissions process can be found on the Assembly’s website www.parliament.act.gov.au.
For further information or to lodge a submission please contact the Committee Secretary on (02) 6205 0129 or by email at: LACommitteeEDT@parliament.act.gov.au.
