I should also note that Mr Hanson was out there over the weekend, the only member of the Assembly that I did see there, and I saw him on the track briefly. I did not get a chance to chat to him, but I appreciate the cheer that he gave me from the sidelines.

The corrections team, as part of the broader JACS team, is a small but valiant crew of just three, but I would like to make a special mention of John Croker from policy development in corrections who toughed out a contribution of 21 straight hours and approximately 30 kilometres, before the reported offer of a hot shower and some shut-eye became too much to pass up. I would also like to acknowledge Emma Hotham and Jess O’Connor from the corrections team.

The weekend, of course, was a family affair, and many JACS staff members brought down their partners and kids to participate in the festivities, which were well received. Certainly when I was down there on Saturday with them, a number of kids of staff of JACS were wandering around the track with us, and it was great to have them involved.

The ACT corrections transport unit provided their barbecue for a fundraiser held by the ACT Law Courts and Tribunals which raised over $500 for the relay. The total amount raised by the JACS jolly joggers was just over $2,000. I would like to thank James McQuillan from the ACT Law Courts and Tribunals for organising the JACS team and certainly making me very welcome as a bit of a participant in the JACS team in the Relay For Life.

Question resolved in the affirmative.

The Assembly adjourned at 4.48 pm.
