Historic Daylight Saving Parliamentary debate confirmed
The Parliamentary debate for MP Peter Wellington’s Daylight Saving for South East Queensland Referendum Bill is now confirmed for 11 May 2011.
Come and show your support!!
Peter Wellington’s Daylight Saving Bill is the first bill to be debated in Queensland parliament, during the session commencing at 7:30pm on Wednesday 11 May. We invite everyone to join us in attending this historic session of Queensland Parliament, and show your support for having Daylight Saving in South East Queensland.
We aim to meet outside the Parliament House main entrance at 7:00pm and enter the gallery at 7:20pm. Parliament House is located at the corner of George and Alice Streets (entrance to public gallery on George Street, near QUT pedestrian entrance). Please confirm your attendance by emailing email@example.com so we know how many of you to expect.
On 6 April, the preceding Bill took up the whole debate time during Parliament, so unfortunately the debate on the Daylight Saving Bill did not commence. A few supporters were in attendance on the evening, and again we say a huge thank you to those who made it.
We would like to remind you to sign the current online Parliamentary e-Petition, and forward the link to your family and friends. The petition calls on the Government to support Mr Wellington’s Bill and hold a trial and referendum on Daylight Saving in South East Queensland. The petition closes this Friday 22 April 2011 – sign it before it’s too late!
DS4SEQ not only urge you to e-sign the formal parliamentary petition, but also encourage you to lobby your local state member, as well as the Premier and the Opposition Leader directly.
