Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2018 Week 4 Hansard (11 April) . .
year to year, I am committed to growing and renewing the community and public housing sectors in the long term.
There is not a day that has gone by since I was elected to this place that I have not committed myself to ensure and to continue to ensure that there is better support for people who need it most. That includes public tenants. I am continually defending and speaking up for public housing tenants, no matter where they live in this city. I will do that again today. I am excited by the work the government is doing and the opportunity that all of us have to make a real difference for all Canberrans. I urge the Assembly to support my amendment to Ms Le Couteur's motion.
That the amendment be agreed to.
The Assembly voted—
Miss C Burch
Ms Le Couteur
Ms J Burch

(a) there is a shortage of locally-supplied blood reserves in Australia, with the National Blood Authority increasingly importing blood supplies from overseas;
(b) last year, the overwhelming majority of Australians and almost three-quarters of Canberrans rejected legal discrimination against Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Intersex and Questioning Australians;
