The petition read as follows:
To the Speaker and Members of the Legislative Assembly for the Australian Capital Territory:
The petition of certain residents of the Australian Capital Territory draws attention of the Assembly that:
The new management of the Civic Pool proposes to retain the dome over the pool throughout the summer months.
Your petitioners therefore request the Assembly to:
Move that the Minister for Sport instruct the new management of the Civic Pool to dismount the dome over the summer months.
MS McRAE: Mr Speaker, I ask for leave to present a petition which does not conform with standing orders, as it does not address the Assembly nor contain a request.
MS McRAE: I present an out-of-order petition from 494 citizens requesting the removal of the dome on the Civic pool.
MR OSBORNE (10.45): I present the Trading Hours (Amendment) Bill (No. 2) 1996, together with the explanatory memorandum.
Title read by Clerk.
MR OSBORNE: I move:
That this Bill be agreed to in principle.
