Presentation of the Address-in-Reply for the First Session of the 57th Parliament of Queensland
I acknowledge the traditional custodians of the lands of Queensland and pay my respect to Elders, past, present and emerging.
As the representative of Her Majesty the Queen, I am honoured to extend to you, Mr Speaker, and to the Members of the Parliament of Queensland, my sincere gratitude for the formal Address-in-Reply to the Governor’s Speech delivered by His Excellency the 26th Governor at the opening of the First Session of the 57th Parliament of Queensland on the 25th of November 2020.
It will be my pleasant duty to convey to Her Majesty this expression of loyalty and warm regard from the Members of the Queensland Parliament.
The Queen remains a strong and unifying figure throughout Queensland, Australia and the nations of the Commonwealth, a stalwart supporter of our shared beliefs in freedom and democracy.
Here in Queensland, I encourage all Members of the Legislative Assembly in their endeavours to promote the well-being and prosperity of our State.
Speaking for the people of Queensland, I trust that your dedicated efforts will be rewarded with much success.
