Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 1996 Week 12 Hansard (20 November) . . Page.. 3838 ..

MR MOORE (continuing):

Mr Speaker, it was always a great pleasure to talk to Bill Pye. I remember particularly when either you or your predecessor hosted a meeting here for previous members of the House of Assembly and various bodies. At that time I had a long discussion with Bill Pye about the service that he gave to the House of Assembly and the sorts of things that he was trying to achieve. When it is summed up, if we had more citizens like Bill Pye, Canberra would be a far better place.

Question resolved in the affirmative, members standing in their places.


The Clerk: The following petitions have been lodged for presentation:

By Mr Hird, from 30 residents, requesting that the lease and development application for the community sporting facilities in McKellar be approved.

By Ms McRae, from 1,573 residents, requesting that the Assembly move that the Minister for Sport instruct the new management of the Civic pool to dismount the dome over the summer months.

The terms of these petitions will be recorded in Hansard and a copy referred to the appropriate Minister.

National Soccer Centre

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 Parliament that: the undersigned residents living in the Belconnen area can identify huge benefits to our community from the proposed project to introduce much needed community, sporting and other amenities by the Belconnen Soccer Club. This project is to be located in McKellar at Section 71, bounded by William Slim Drive and Owen Dixon Drive.

Your petitioners therefore request urgent attention by the Assembly to approve this lease and development application.
