fundraising activities and, to this end, singlehandedly organised a number of functions over the years. One of those fondly remembered by members was the fundraising lunch she put on at the Deep Dish restaurant in Deakin prior to the 2004 federal election—a classy event organised by a very classy lady.
Many of us remember with great affection the stall run by Marjorie and her late husband, Keith, at Red Hill primary school at election times, through which they distributed thousands of how-to-vote cards. We in the Liberal Party will miss Marjorie Turbayne and her unflinching support for a cause in which she passionately believed.
Question resolved in the affirmative, members standing in their places.
Absence of Clerk
Mr Speaker informed the Assembly that, due to the absence of the Clerk on leave, the Deputy Clerk will act as Clerk for the duration of the Clerk’s leave.
The following petition was lodged for presentation, by Mr Stanhope, from 11 residents:
Hospitals—Clare Holland House—petition No 106
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 Legislative Assembly that the ACT Government has expressed an intention to sell Clare Holland House, the ACT community hospice, to a private, Sydney-based corporation.
Your petitioners, therefore, request the Assembly to take all necessary steps within its powers to prevent Clare Holland House, and the lakeside land on which it stands, from being sold or otherwise transferred to any private corporation or person.
The Acting Clerk having announced that the terms of the petition would be recorded in Hansard and a copy referred to the appropriate minister, the petition was received.
