Bill as a whole, as amended, agreed to.
Bill, as amended, agreed to.
That the Assembly do now adjourn.
MR RUGENDYKE (5.33): I rise briefly in the adjournment debate to advise members of the Assembly that Angela Wood is in town until Friday. Angela is a charming lady I met some months ago in Sydney and invited to Canberra to speak on her personal experiences and the experiences of her family regarding the death of her daughter, Anna, as a result of drug use. I listened today to her talk at Kaleen High School. It was a very moving talk, with a very strong message, and the young people at Kaleen High School received her words well. I left the room deeply moved by what she had had to say. I invite members and other interested people to hear Angela again this evening at 7.30 at Kaleen High School.
Question resolved in the affirmative.
