Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2012 Week 2 Hansard (21 February) . . Page.. 524..
We were really pleased, obviously, that it was a Greens motion that led to this being held. We were really pleased that we got support from all the Assembly for that and that we had unanimous support for this to go ahead. As I said, I will go through the responses to the recommendations in more detail. It is good that we have now got this report. We can go through the recommendations and, hopefully, get further feedback from MACA and anyone else who played a part in the assembly-and look to whether we hold another one in the future.
I think it was very successful. It was a great day. There was a lot of fantastic input. As we have seen from overseas, with Scotland, it has been something they are looking at holding again. It is a great way that we can allow older people in the community to play a direct part-not just members of the council but other members of the community. Again, I think it was a great thing that we had a wide breadth of people from the community involved.
Again, I thank the minister for tabling this today. It is great that we have got this report and we can act on it.
