Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2002 Week 4 Hansard (9 April) . . Page.. 800..
MS DUNDAS (continuing):
Neil has certainly provided inspiration for many in the arts community, and that has also been evidenced by the number of people who have risen today to add their condolences to his passing. He was definitely an inspiration to many in the arts community and many Canberrans. It is a tragic loss. As I said, I support what Kerrie said about the many recent unfortunate tragic losses throughout the arts community. It is sad but unfortunately it is part of life. I hope that the arts community can draw strength from each other to move on from these tragic times.
Question resolved in the affirmative, members standing in their places.
The following petition was lodged for presentation, by Mr Stefaniak, from 200 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:
Passage of these Bills would be contrary to:
Your petitioners therefore request the Assembly to reject these Bills.
The Clerk having announced that the terms of the petition would be recorded in Hansard and a copy referred to the appropriate minister, the petition was received.
