The following notices were given:

Mr Pyne: to present a Bill for an Act to amend the Fair Work (Registered Organisations) Act 2009, and for related purposes.

Mr Keenan: to present a Bill for an Act to amend various Acts relating to the criminal law and law enforcement, and for other purposes.

Mr McCormack: to present a Bill for an Act to amend the law relating to superannuation, and for related purposes.

Ms Owens: to move:

That this House:

(1) acknowledges that:

(a) there is a significant, ongoing and growing need for the provision of emergency relief to support vulnerable Australians;

(b) local organisations such as Holroyd Community Aid (HCA) play a critical role in the delivery of emergency relief services, with HCA having done so for nearly 50 years; and

(c) volunteers are a crucial and valued part in this;

(2) condemns the Government for:

(a) increasing the demand for emergency relief services while cutting funding to organisations such as HCA; and

(b) the lack of certainty that has been created for the community, volunteers, staff and those in need by the way decisions have been made and implemented; and

(3) calls on the Government to restore funding to HCA.

Ms Owens: to move:

That this House:

(1) notes that:

(a) in North Parramatta there is a phenomenal colonial heritage precinct that rivals any in Australia by far; and

(b) this precinct houses:

   (i) Australia's first female convict factory;

   (ii) the Parramatta Girls Home; and

      (iii) a number of rare buildings from Australia's colonial history in the 1700s;

(2) condemns the New South Wales Government for:

(a) its plans to overdevelop the site with buildings of between 6 and 30 storeys high against the base of some of our most significant convict heritage buildings;

(b) selling off large plots of public land to build these large developments; and

(c) a complete lack of planning on how it will refurbish the heritage buildings, despite the rapid development around them; and

(3) calls on the Government to:

(a) pause this land grab and consult further with the community; and

(b) develop a real plan on how the heritage of the site will be preserved.
