Mrs Armitage (Launceston) - Mr President, today I speak about someone who needs no introduction.  The son of a butcher, Josef Chromy's formative years from eight to 19 were under Nazi and Soviet rule.  Czechoslovakia was quite an oppressed country where he saw no futur...

Mrs Armitage (Launceston) - Mr President, I too support the bill. The legislation is about protecting children from the risk of harm, and hopefully preventing it.

Mrs Armitage (Launceston) - Mr President, I want to begin by talking about the important friendship between Australia and China. One of the greatest examples of this is the visit to China earlier this year by 22 Scotch Oakburn College grade 6 students. The children rec...

Mrs Armitage (Launceston) - Mr President, I also thank the Leader for all the briefings we had.  They were very informative and very helpful, particularly for a layperson such as myself.  You have a bit of an understanding of the law but not to the depth that is requir...
