Parliament: Other Speeches

The Hon. K.L. VINCENT: Just very briefly, Dignity for Disability will be supporting the establishment of this committee and we do so not only because we have received many letters and emails asking us to do so, but also because we believe it is the job of this parliament to be informed and transparent, and to explore those issues that those members of our community think are important enough for us to explore as a parliament.

So, we welcome this opportunity to bring these issues into the light and, if there is nothing to be hidden or ashamed of, I very much look forward to that being proven as being true. For the time being, I would like this parliament to get on with its job and investigate, with transparency and in a thorough manner, an issue that is obviously very important to many out there in the community.
