Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2015 Week 13 Hansard (Tuesday, 17 November 2015) . . Page.. 4080 ..


I would like to take this opportunity to specifically thank the King family—John, Sandra, Jennifer and her daughter, Danielle—who I worked alongside at the Chisholm shops selling poppies. I also thank the president of the Tuggeranong sub-branch, David Woolf, and the Tuggeranong sub-branch RSL executive and members for their dedicated service. Many of them volunteered their time to sell poppies in the lead-up to Remembrance Day, as did members of many of the other RSL clubs. Well done to all those volunteers.

This year, 11 November marked the 97th anniversary of the armistice, which ended the First World War. Each year on this day we observe one minute’s silence at 11 am in memory of those who died or suffered in all wars and armed conflicts. While the ceremony for Remembrance Day last week was damp, it was a respectful, moving and fitting commemoration of those who died or suffered in all wars and armed conflicts.

Question resolved in the affirmative.

The Assembly adjourned at 6.10 pm.
