Canberra refugee support group

MR SMYTH (Leader of the Opposition) (6.23): Mr Speaker, I rise tonight to speak about a reception that you hosted last Sunday, 29 February, in the reception room of the Assembly. It was a reception in honour of the Canberra Refugee Support organisation and it was their third annual Canberra Refugee Support reception. Mr Speaker, you were there, as was Ms Tucker. Ms Dundas turned up, and I was there representing the Liberals as Gary Humphries came but had to go to another function quite early.

On behalf of the Canberra Refugee Support group, I just wanted to read some of the speech that their president used on the night to tell people about what Canberra Refugee Support does:

This Reception is intended to present an opportunity for the members of the Canberra Refugee Support to meet on a social basis and especially to say "thank you"to the many people from other refugee related areas, with whom we work.

I am sure that you appreciate that organisations like Canberra Refugee Support can only operate effectively in cooperation with others. On behalf of our members, let me say "thank you"to the other agencies and groups involved with Refugees in the region.
