Griffith library

Discussion of matter of public importance

MR SPEAKER: I have received letters from Mr Gentleman, Ms MacDonald, Ms Porter and Mr Pratt proposing that matters of public importance be submitted to the Assembly. In accordance with Standing Order 79, I have determined that the matter proposed by Mr Pratt be submitted to the Assembly, namely:

The importance of retaining the Griffith Library.

MR PRATT (Brindabella) (3.48): Mr Speaker, I rise today on behalf of a significant number of Canberrans who are outraged at the planned closure of the Griffith library. I draw the attention of this place to the petition tabled today containing over 2,500 signatures of constituents, mainly from the inner south, but also from all over Canberra who are vehemently opposed to the closure of this valuable asset to the community. I also acknowledge the hard work of the library users, the Griffith/Narrabundah Community Association and the Save Our Griffith Library Group, who have rallied support to try and retain the Griffith library.
