Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2008 Week 2 Hansard (4 March) . . Page.. 363..
Tuesday, 4 March 2008
MR SPEAKER (Mr Berry) took the chair at 10.30 am, made a formal recognition that the Assembly was meeting on the lands of the traditional owners, and asked members to stand in silence and pray or reflect on their responsibilities to the people of the Australian Capital Territory.
The following petition was lodged for presentation, by Mr Mulcahy, from 145 residents:
ACTION bus service—routes
To the Speaker and Members of the Legislative Assembly for the Australian Capital Territory
This petition of ACTION bus residents of the suburb of Curtin in the Australian Capital Territory draws to the attention of the Assembly that:
The Government intends to withdraw the well-patronised ACTION Curtin Express commuter bus service (route 37) as part of the proposed new bus routes planned for Network 08 from 28 April 2008.
Your petitioners therefore request the Assembly (1) should note that this express service has a high level of broad community usage and support (2) should note that the service fulfils a valuable role as an alternative to the car/car parking in Civic (3) should reaffirm its support for the environmental and social value of this service to members of the ACT community by calling for the retention of the service.
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.
