Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 1995 Week 06 Hansard (Tuesday, 19 September 1995) . . Page.. 1454 ..


Legislative Assembly Prayer

The petition read as follows:

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 our deep concern with the decision to abandon the formal prayer at the beginning of each sitting day of the Legislative Assembly. We believe this goes far beyond a well held practice in all other Parliaments in the Australian Commonwealth and was made without proper consideration of the opinions of the people of the Australian Capital Territory. We believe that no Party or individual has a mandate to endorse this decision.

We request that the formal prayer for God’s blessing on the Assembly be restored to its rightful place at the beginning of each sitting day.

Community Sporting Facilities, McKellar

The petition read as follows:

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 undersigned residents living in the Belconnen community totally support the proposed development and provision of much needed community sporting facilities by the Belconnen Soccer Club initiated in 1985, at the intersection of Owen Dixon and William Slim Drives in McKellar.

Your petitioners therefore request the Assembly to approve the above lease and development application as soon as possible.

Petitions received.
