Debate resumed from 12 February, on motion by Ms Gillard:

That the House:

(1)   extends its deepest sympathies to families and loved ones of those Australians killed in the weekend’s tragic bushfires in Victoria;

(2)   records its deep regret at the human injury, the loss of property and the destruction of communities caused by the weekend’s fires;

(3)   praises the work of emergency services, volunteers and community members in assisting friends and neighbours in this time of need; and

(4)   acknowledges the profound impact on those communities affected and the role of governments and the Australian community in assisting their recovery and rebuilding.
