Wednesday, 24 September 2003

The Assembly met at 10.30 am.

(Quorum formed.)

MR SPEAKER (Mr Berry) took the chair and asked members to stand in silence and pray or reflect on their responsibilities to the people of the Australian Capital Territory.

Petitions

The following petitions were lodged for presentation.

Garran shopping centre

by Mr Cornwell , from 15 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 there is an urgent need to evaluate the vehicle parking arrangements at the Garran Shopping Centre.

Your petitioners therefore request that the Assembly call on the Minister for Urban Services to direct the Departments Traffic Engineers to undertake a full assessment of vehicle parking arrangements, present and future, at this shopping centre. The current lack of vehicle parking spaces has been caused by the introduction of a Medical Centre, at the Garran Shopping Centre.

Hughes shopping centre

by Mr Cornwell , from 112 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 lighting of the public car parking areas at the Hughes Shopping Centre needs urgent evaluation for an upgrade.

Your petitioners therefore request the Assembly to call on the Minister for Urban Services to include in the Department of Urban Services works program for the next budget 2004-2005, the upgrade of lighting of the public car parking areas at the Hughes Shopping Centre to assist night shoppers and other users of that area, in particular for safety and security reasons.

The acting clerk having announced that the terms of the petitions would be recorded in Hansard and a copy referred to the appropriate minister, the petitions were received.
