Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2016 Week 7 Hansard (3 August) . .
Minister Rattenbury did nothing for Telopea. That was another issue that we did not get around to speaking about. Overall, I just say that I am very disappointed in the government's and the Minister for Education's response to my motion. My motion simply asks the government to address the issues that have still been not addressed correctly. The minister has, in his own way, written his own epitaph for what he has done for education to date. We will not be supporting his amendment.
That Mr Rattenbury's amendment be agreed to.
The Assembly voted—
Ayes 8: Mr Barr Ms Berry Dr Bourke Mr Corbell Ms Fitzharris Mr Gentleman Mr Hinder Mr Rattenbury
Noes 7:Mr Coe Mr Doszpot Mrs Dunne Mr Hanson Mrs Jones Ms Lawder Mr Wall
Question so resolved in the affirmative.
Motion, as amended, agreed to.
Multicultural and multifaith groups
MRS JONES (Molonglo) (4.21): I move:
That this Assembly:
(a) the enormous contribution multicultural and multifaith groups make to the broad Canberra community;
(b) the importance for these groups to have a place to hold festivals, for worship and language classes as well as a place of support for their community;
(c) the importance of having a facility that is accessible by public transport and has adequate parking; and
(d) many multicultural and multifaith groups have experienced significant distress in their own countries for their faith or ethnicity; and
(2) calls on the ACT Government to treat multicultural and multifaith groups with respect by implementing a clear process for groups seeking land or facilities for multicultural or community use.
