Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2001 Week 8 Hansard (7 August) . . Page.. 2425..


Tuesday, 7 August 2001

The Assembly met at 10.30 am.

(Quorum formed.)

MR SPEAKER (Mr Cornwell) took the chair and asked members to stand in silence and pray or reflect on their responsibilities to the people of the Australian Capital Territory.

Petitions

Cigarettes

The following petition was lodged for presentation, by Mr Rugendyke, from 19 residents:

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 to the attention of the Assembly that:

minors including children are obtaining cigarettes from vending machines; and

following deregulation of business trading hours, adult smokers cannot claim they are reliant on access to tobacco products through vending machines.

Your petitioners therefore request the Assembly to strengthen its commitment to stopping young people from becoming addicted to nicotine by immediately passing legislation prohibiting the sale of cigarettes and other tobacco products through vending machines.

Nicholls shopping centre

The following petition was lodged for presentation, by Mr Corbell , from 171 residents:

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 to the attention of the Assembly that the large and almost wholly developed suburb of Nicholls has no local shopping centre, despite land initially being allocated and released for that purpose.

Your petitioners therefore request that the Assembly as an urgent priority, re-release the land for immediate leasing, development and building of a local shopping centre in the suburb of Nicholls.

The Clerk having announced that the terms of the petitions would be recorded in Hansard and a copy referred to the appropriate minister, the petitions were received.
