The Standing Committee of the Legislative Assembly which was asked at the end of 2017 to look at finding and recommending a mammal emblem for the ACT looks forward to receiving the views of all members of the community who want to make a contribution to the Committee‘s inquiry.
The Standing Committee Chair, Suzanne Orr MLA noted that, following reference of the question to the Committee in December 2017, the Committee published its invitation to all in the ACT community to have their say on possible choices of an emblem the Committee could consider.
Ms Orr also reminds the community the Committee has set Friday, 23 March 2018 as the date for submissions.
Ms Orr also noted the Committee sent an Information Pack on the inquiry to all ACT Schools this week. The Pack provides a comprehensive and easy-to-use information source and links, and has a section inviting schools to send students’ views to the Committee.
Details of the Committee’s call for submissions, and the questions the Committee has been asked, are at the Committee’s website –
Ms Orr said “I and the Committee want to remind everyone interested – particularly our schools - to send their views to the Committee by Friday, 23 March. The Committee will be looking for the best option for the ACT community to select as our mammal emblem to add to the ACT’s current, very recognizable, emblems of the Royal Bluebell and the Gang-gang cockatoo.”
