Senator Humphries has shouted forth a battle cry sure to stir Canberrans souls.
Should we elect a Liberal Government at some future election he promises that after years of neglect by successive Governments, both Labor and Liberal, the vacant seats on the National Memorials Committee (set aside for ACT residents amongst the Prime Minister, Leader of the Opposition, and the Secretary of the Department of Veterans’ Affairs) will finally be filled!
“The Coalition will fill two vacant positions reserved for ACT residents on the Canberra National Memorials Committee,” Coalition spokesman on the ACT Senator Gary Humphries said today. “Canberrans have passionate views about what goes on in their city.
“The concern surrounding the World Wars Memorials is a timely reminder that no Australians feel more passionately about the values of the Bush Capital than the people who live in it.
“A recent hearing of the Joint Standing Committee on the National Capital and External Territories in Canberra also highlighted the dangers of not having local representation on the Canberra National Memorials Committee.”
I know it’s a vote changer for me. How about you?
