Mr UREN (Reid) (Minister for Urban and Regional Development) - I move:

That the amendments be disagreed to.

The Cities Commission is an independent arm of the Department of Urban and Regional Development. The Cities Commission as an arm of the Department will be concerned with cities, old and new. It will be concerned with new cities in regions. The Cities Commission will assist the promotion of regional development by the establishment of new cities. A major role of the Cities Commission will be to go out to State governments and local government bodies as a promoter of better ways of achieving urban and regional development. The name 'Cities Commission' provides a sharp focus for its activities and one which gives it a separate identity from the Department. The suggested amendment would leave the Commission with a lengthy and cumbersome title and one which would cause the Commission and the Department to be confused.
