Dear Mr Templemann
On 21 November 2017, the Hon Bill Marmion, MLA, presented a petition to the Legislative Assembly calling for the immediate cessation of the redevelopment program at Karrakatta Cemetery. I would like to know when you will move to refer that petition for committee consideration in accordance with Legislative Assembly Standing Orders 67. The Chief Executive Officer of the Metropolitan Cemeteries Board is on record as saying that the process will cease if the public does not want it. I, for one, am well aware of the repugnance with which the general public regard that process, but I am also aware that no attempt has ever been made to legitimately gauge the public's response. Debate on this petition is an ideal, and long overdue, vehicle to test public feeling. If you believe the public supports this practise, you can have no reason to suppress this issue, to hide from the public the reality of what has been done at Karrakatta since 1977 or to gloss over the devastation it has already wrought on our heritage and on WA families.
I look forward to your early action on this issue.
