Important Information:
Terms of Reference:Petitions tabled in the Legislative Council are referred to the Standing Committee on Environment and Public Affairs. The following petition was referred to the Committee on June 11 2003:

"We the undersigned residents of Western Australia respectfully request an urgent upgrade of the Albany Residential College. 110 co-educational students have been forced to live in a facility that was built to accommodate 72 male students in 1973. The state of the accommodation and supporting facilities is well below standard and at present causes our children to live in sub-standard conditions. The contribution by the Albany Residential College to education of children in the Albany educational district is substantial and deserves recognition by upgrading the present facilities.

Your petitioners therefore humbly request that the Legislative Council will consider the plight of the Albany Residential College."
