MADAM SPEAKER (Ms Burch) (10.00): Members:

Dhawura nguna, dhawura Ngunnawal.

Yanggu ngalawiri, dhunimanyin Ngunnawalwari dhawurawari.

Nginggada Dindi dhawura Ngunnaawalbun yindjumaralidjinyin.

The words I have just spoken are in the language of the traditional custodians and translate to:

This is Ngunnawal country.

Today we are gathering on Ngunnawal country.

We always pay respect to Elders, female and male, and Ngunnawal country.

Members, I ask you to stand in silence and pray or reflect on our responsibilities to the people of the Australian Capital Territory.

Leave of absence

Motion (by Mr Hanson) agreed to:

That leave of absence be granted to Ms Lee for this sitting week due to her attendance at the 2021 United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP26) in Glasgow.


The following petitions were lodged for presentation:

Municipal services—Hackett shops—petition 12-21

By Ms Vassarotti, from 50 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 ACT Assembly:

Hackett Shops is a thriving centre which attracts many ACT residents to the Majura Pines mountain-bike trails, and many other residents to the amenity of their local shops; with IGA, pub, cafe, hairdresser, (mums and bubs) gym/yoga studio, beauty practice, financial advisor and bicycle repair shop.

The visitors to the Hackett shops, do not have access to a public toilet facility and this applies excess pressure to toilet facilities offered by the cafe and pub, and pressure on other businesses to provide facilities for their customers, when their premises may not be suitable to offer toilet use.

Your petitioners, therefore, request the Assembly to call on the ACT Government to:

Have built at the Hackett shops, a public toilet facility.
