Responded By: Hon Mick de Brenni MP on 5/03/2020

TO: The Honourable the Speaker and Members of the Legislative Assembly of Queensland

Queensland citizens draws to the attention of the House that the Queensland Government's sports strategy funding program, "Activate! Queensland 2019-2029", currently does not permit the purchase of land to fulfil the purpose of the strategy.

Your petitioners, therefore, request the House to do all within its power to support Townsville Sailing Club's purchase of land through "Activate! Queensland 2019-2029". We also support requesting the House to do all in its power to support Townsville Sailing Club and all aquatic activities to remain on their current location at The Strand.
