Petitions

The following petitions and e-petition were lodged for presentation:

Belconnen Arts Centre—petition No 7-16

By Dr Bourke, from13 residents:

To the Speaker and Members of the Legislative Assembly for the Australian Capital Territory.

The following residents of the ACT draw to the attention of the Assembly the proven success of the Belconnen Arts Centre since stage 1 opened in 2009 and we look forward to the ACT Government completing stage 2 of the Centre as an essential part of Belconnen's community and culture.

Your petitioners, therefore, request the Assembly to call on the Government to commit to a timeline and funding to complete the Belconnen Arts Centre by 2021.

Freedom of speech—petition No 8-16

By Mrs Dunne, from 204 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:

The legislative amendments introduced by the Health (Patient Privacy) Amendment Act 2015 seek to ban pro-life actions in designated areas near an abortion clinic, including praying. These provisions trample on basic human rights involving freedom of expression which are essential in democracy such as Australia.

Your petitioners therefore request the Assembly to repeal these undemocratic provisions.

Belconnen Arts Centre—E-petition No 4-16

By Dr Bourke, from 528 residents:

To the Speaker and Members of the Legislative Assembly for the Australian Capital Territory.
