Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 1998 Week 7 Hansard (24 September) . . Page.. 2228 ..
MR HUMPHRIES (continuing):
The Emergency Services Bureau, in particular Mr Castle, Mr Paulsen and other officers within the bureau, have been extremely hardworking in their pursuit of this goal, as have a number of people outside the bureau. Ms Judith Ellem, in particular, was tireless in pursuit of this goal through a number of meetings and community fundraising activities throughout the Canberra region. There were others as well, including members of my own staff, particularly Mr Forshaw. Those people dedicated themselves to this vision. I am very grateful for their efforts in that respect. I am very sure that when the service operates from next Thursday it will provide a very high quality of service to the people of this region.
Question resolved in the affirmative.
