On 18 September 2019, the Standing Committee on Environment and Public Affairs resolved

      fit for purpose.
      In particular, the Committee will examine:
      (a) the role of petitions in a modern parliament;
      (b) the Committee’s practice and procedure in inquiring into petitions referred by the
      Legislative Council;
      (c) the Committee’s practice and procedure in carrying out its environment function;
      (d) the approach of other parliamentary committees in carrying out environment
      and petitions functions; and
