Burial and Cremation (Interment Rights) Amendment Bill
February 8, 2023
I rise to speak in support of this amendment bill, the Burial and Cremation (Interment Rights) Amendment Bill. One of the things people get really emotional about is burial places. It is obviously a time of grief when people bury members of their family or friends. While that grief goes away, the connection to that place and also to that person is very important, so when those places are in some way interfered with, it does generate a lot of emotion and grief again. That is right across many cultures and people with different faiths, and people with no faith. People do see places where people are buried or interred as places of sanctity; in other words, they are places that need to be held in a great deal of respect.
It's International Day of People with Disability
November 30, 2022
Today, I would like to draw the house's attention to a couple of international days when we celebrate various matters. The first is the International Day of People with Disability, which is on 3 December, this Saturday. This day helps the community to focus on those people who live with disability. An important role we have as a society and also as a government is to ensure that we enable those people living with disability not only to engage fully in the community but also to live with dignity.
