The Joint Standing Committee on the National Capital and External Territories will inquire into and report on the development of stage two of the Australian Capital Territory light rail project, with regard to:
- the relevant parliamentary approval processes for works within the Parliamentary zone;
- the roles of the National Capital Authority and the Australian Government, and the associated approval processes;
- possible impacts on the Parliamentary zone and Parliamentary precincts, including any impacts on the heritage values and national importance of the Parliamentary zone and our national capital; and
- the identification of matters that may be of concern prior to formal parliamentary or Australian Government consideration of the project; and
any other relevant matter the Committee wishes to examine.
