Response to The West Australian news report on Citizenship dates

Published: Friday, 1 March 2019 at 11:07:15 AM

A West Australian article today includes comments taken from a very measured and respectful letter from Mayor Emma Cole in response to the Federal Government’s request for comment on proposed changes to the Australian Citizenship Ceremonies Code.

The City of Vincent holds a Citizenship Ceremony on Australia Day and the Mayor and Vincent Council does not have a formal position on changing the date of Australia Day. If Vincent Council were to take a position this would always be in response to, and on the basis of, consultation with our community.
