Queensland Day Citizenship Ceremony, 6 June 2010

The Queensland Parliament celebrated Queensland Day by hosting its second citizenship ceremony on 6 June 2010. Speaker John Mickel acted as the Presiding Officer for the ceremony and welcomed 92 people from 28 countries as new Australian citizens.


Speaker Mickel said, “There is no clearer expression of an individual’s commitment to, and identification with a country, than to be officially one of its citizens. The decision that each of you has made to become Australian citizens is truly commendable.”


The citizenship ceremony was held in the parliament’s historic Legislative Council Chamber and was also attended by the Minister for Infrastructure and Planning, Hon Stirling Hinchliffe, the Leader of the Opposition, John-Paul Langbroek and the Commissioner of Police, Bob Atkinson APM.
