Debate resumed, on motion by Mr Perrett:

That this House:

(1)   recognises the conclusion of a great television police drama, The Bill, and thanks the ABC for its long standing commitment to the program;

(2)   acknowledges that since 1983, The Bill, has kept many of us from fully engaging with the broader Australian arts community on a Saturday night;

(3)   recognises the broad contribution that our local arts make to Australian society and culture;

(4)   reaffirms our commitment to the arts and to engaging with our local performers, artists and writers (particularly on our now Bill-less Saturday nights); and

(5)   calls on the Minister for the Arts to lead Australia into a new era of artistic development and excellence and for all Australians to better support their local live performances.
