Discussion of matter of public importance

MR SPEAKER: I have received letters from Ms Bresnan, Mr Coe, Mr Doszpot, Mrs Dunne, Mr Hanson, Mr Hargreaves, Ms Hunter, Ms Le Couteur, Ms Porter and Mr Smyth proposing that matters of public importance be submitted to the Assembly. In accordance with standing order 79, I have determined that the matter proposed by Mr Coe be submitted to the Assembly, namely:

The importance of Defence Force veterans to the ACT community.

MR COE (Ginninderra) (3.13): Our Defence Force veterans do play a very important role across the ACT community. It really is a pleasure to stand here today in this place to put on the record the opposition’s support for veterans and the sterling role they have played in their professional life and their role that they continue to play post retirement, post service in the community.

Of course, the ACT opposition recognises quite formally the role that veterans play in our community. That is evidenced by the fact that we do have a shadow minister for veterans’ affairs. We put on the record that we believe this is a very important part of our community. It is a part of our community that we think deserves the attention and deserves the respect that having an appropriate shadow minister does indeed give.
