BUSINESS – Leave of Absence – Thursday, 12 November 2020

Mr ALBANESE (GrayndlerLeader of the Opposition) (15:13): I move:

That leave of absence from the determination of this sitting until 3 May 2021 be given to the honourable member for Jagajaga for parental leave purposes, and that leave of absence from 30 November 2020 until 2 February 2021 be given to the honourable member for Burt for parental leave purposes.


On behalf of everyone in the House, firstly, we wish the member for Burt and his partner, Annabel, and their already young son, Nicholas, all the best as they get Nicholas a young brother or sister. The member for Burt has a task ahead of him, but the member for Jagajaga has got a more significant one because she is due to give birth next month. We wish Kate and her partner, Daniel, and their daughter Harriet all the best. They will have a fantastic Christmas arrival in that family and, on behalf of the House, good luck.
