The following petition was lodged for presentation:
Roller derby facilities—petition 20-19
By Ms J Burch, from 542 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 lack of indoor facilities for training and competition games for roller derby in The ACT (both Canberra Roller Derby League and Varsity Derby League).
Your petitioners, therefore, request the Assembly to urgently review existing facilities in both public and private ownership and to ensure that roller derby in the ACT has the required facilities for future growth and demand.
The Clerk having announced that the terms of the petition would be recorded in Hansard and a copy referred to the appropriate minister for response pursuant to standing order 100, the petition was received.
Pursuant to standing order 99A, the petition, having more than 500 signatories, was referred to the Standing Committee on Environment and Transport and City Services.
Motion to take note of petition
Motion (by Madam Speaker) agreed to:
That the petition so lodged be noted.
Motion (by Mr Gentleman) agreed to, with the concurrence of an absolute majority:
That so much of standing orders be suspended as would prevent matters of public importance being discussed this day and Thursday, 15 August 2019.
