Emeritus Professor Jack Richardson AO

Statement by Speaker

MR SPEAKER: Before we commence question time, I would like to advise members of the death of Emeritus Professor Jack Richardson AO on 13 June 2011. Professor Richardson made a lasting contribution to the community as Dean of the Australian University's Faculty of Law during its establishment years. As the first commonwealth and ACT Ombudsman, Professor Richardson established a strong ethic of care and professionalism which continues to influence how these offices conduct their business today.

After his retirement as Ombudsman in 1985, Professor Richardson spent time in legal practice and was responsible for establishing the ombudsman's office in Samoa, where he held the position of ombudsman from 1990 to 1992. At the time of his death, Professor Richardson had just completed working on a book on Australian federal government and constitutional law.

As a mark of respect to the memory of Professor Richardson, I ask members to rise in their places.
