Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2017 Week 05 Hansard (Wednesday, 10 May 2017) . . Page.. 1507 ..


Wednesday, 10 May 2017

MADAM SPEAKER (Ms Burch) took the chair at 10 am 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 e-petition and petitions were lodged for presentation:

Criminalisation of a non-consensual sexual image—petition 5-17

By Ms Le Couteur, from 520 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 Assembly that there is no specific criminal offence prohibiting the non-consensual disclosure of a sexual image (the phenomenon colloquially referred to as “revenge porn”).

Your petitioners, therefore, request the Assembly to consider filling this gap in the law by criminalising the non-consensual disclosure of a sexual image.

Public housing in Wright—petition 8-17

By Mr Hanson, from 464 residents:

To the Speaker and Members of the Legislative Assembly for the Australian Capital Territory

This petition of certain residents of the Australian Capital Territory draws to the attention of the Assembly that:

Wright has no existing or planned shops, town hall, school, church, child care centre, or any other such community facility for residents use and that the ACT Government has planned to build public housing on Section 29, block 1, the only block zoned for “community use” in Wright.

Your petitioners therefore request the Assembly to:

1. Overturn the decision of the ACT Public Housing taskforce to build public housing on Section 29, Block 1 in Wright; and that

2. the ACT Government build a community facility of the kind mentioned above, on Section 29, Block 1 in Wright which can be used by and of benefit to the entire community in Wright and Molonglo.
