CONDOLENCES

The Hon. Edward Gough Whitlam (read by Clr Stanley)

                                       

Men and Women of Liverpool

 

It is with great pride that I move the condolence motion for the Hon. Edward Gough Whitlam AO, QC former member for Werriwa and the 21st Prime Minister of Australia. Mr Whitlam was the member for Werriwa for 25 years from 1952 to 1978. During this time Mr. Whitlam represented much of the Liverpool Local Government Area. His influence on our city is noted by the many Council assets which are named in his honour such as the Whitlam Centre, Whitlam Ovals 1-4, and across our border in Fairfield Council the Whitlam library. His legacy of course is much deeper than this. It is his support of equality of opportunity; in healthcare, education, services the arts, libraries and much more.

 

As Australians we are still reaping the rewards from the reforms that were put in place during his Prime Ministership from 5th December 1972 until 11 November 1975. His legacy is varied and touched every Australian citizen. Universal health care, recognition of Aboriginal rights, recognition of China, access to University Education no matter your economic circumstances, providing sewer to the western suburbs of Sydney, pension reforms, no fault divorce and support of the Arts to name only a few.


Mr Whitlam passed away on 21st October 2014 at the age of 98.

 

Like many of my generation living in the western suburbs of Sydney, Mr Whitlam had great influences on myself and my family. His support of women's rights and the changes he made in the early sixties to the contribution of women in our great party mean that I sit here as woman and as an elected representative of the Labor party on Liverpool Council.

 

Some of my earliest memories involve Mr Whitlam, my father ringing from the election party in 1972 ( which was held at the El Toro Hotel at Warwick Farm) excited by the change in government after 23 years and the hope and promise that brought with it. My mother crying at his dismissal from office. My disappointment that he retired a little before I was able to vote for him. I have had the great privilege of serving on the Werriwa electorate council for many years as President and Secretary.

 

I met Mr. Whitlam twice; once as a teenager, at my high school he came to open our first multicultural day, a celebration of cultures which made up our school and country. His presence was amazing. He took time to walk around and look at each of the displays and talk to students and then much later at a book launch for a book that my sister was a contributor too, again he was generous with his time, and was able to converse with everyone in the room. We talked about Liverpool and his recollections of western Sydney and Werriwa.

 

My Labor party colleagues in the room tonight know of his importance to our party and I'm sure those previous members here also understand what a great contribution he continued to make to Australia and Labor after his retirement. In fact Mr Joe Durrant, our former Mayor, rang me concerned that this Council had plans to properly recognise Mr Whitlam’s passing. He related that Mr Whitlam often walked the streets of Liverpool whilst he was a member and Prime Minister, without the need for security guards, chatting to residents and acknowledging acclamations that were called out to him as he passed. Mr Whitlam’s electorate office was indeed in Liverpool for some of his time in office and is now the office of the current Member for Liverpool. In fact at a Branch meeting last night one of our members Mr Jim Brassil spoke eloquently about his time as chief of staff for Hon Lance Barnard, Whitlam’s Deputy. 

 

Paul Keating said of Whitlam “He changed the way Australia thought about itself and gave the country a new destiny. He helped create a more inclusive compassionate society that was more engaged in the world. Australia’s history can be divided as pre-1972 and post-1975.”

 

Most  Australian Prime Ministers are interested in big issues, macroeconomic policy, foreign affairs, taxation, health policy etc. and Gough Whitlam certainly made major contributions in these areas. But Gough was also interested in issues that most Prime Ministers miss, the experience of living in Australian suburbs. Gough Whitlam was the first Labor leader to represent an electorate based in the suburbs of Western Sydney. His children went to school here. He knew what it was like to live in the Western Suburbs, the suburbs of Liverpool, the suburbs of his Electorate and because of this, he knew what needed to be done to give everyone the opportunities to which they were entitled.

 

In Mr Whitlam’s own words: “My great objective as a parliamentarian was to dramatise the deficiencies and devise practical government programs to deal with them. It was a cause that went to the heart of our way of life. It seemed to me that if governments could not do something for the conditions of life in our cities and suburbs there was something deeply wrong with our system of government and our national priorities."

 

The Whitlam government was committed to improving life in suburbs like Liverpool, focusing on opportunities in the areas health, employment, transport, even sewerage.  In fact his partner in life Margaret when she realised the lack of facilities such as libraries and swimming pools lobbied to have these essential community assets available to the people of the electorate. She served for many years on the committee of the local swimming club.

 

According to Labor Frontbencher Hon. Chris Bowen Shadow Treasurer:

 

“He loved what Neville Wran said of him: ‘It was said of Caesar Augustus that he found Rome brick and left it marble. It will be said of Gough Whitlam that he found the outer suburbs of Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane unsewered and left them fully flushed.'”

 

Last year, in a speech to the Whitlam Institute, Noel Pearson reflected this way on the achievements of the Whitlam government:

 

“Thirty-eight years later we are like John Cleese, Eric Idle and Michael Palin’s Jewish insurgents in the Life of Brian ranting against the despotic rule of Rome, defiantly demanding

“and what did the Romans ever do for us anyway?”

“Apart from Medibank?”

“and the Trade Practices Act 1974?”

“cutting tariff protections?”

“and no-fault divorce and the Family Law Act 1975?”

“the Australia Council?”

“the Federal Court?”

“the Order of Australia?”

“federal legal aid?”

“the Racial Discrimination Act 1975?”

“needs-based schools funding?”

“the recognition of China?”

“the Law Reform Commission?”

“the abolition of conscription?”

“student financial assistance?”

“FM radio and the Heritage Commission?”

“non-discriminatory immigration rules?”

“community health clinics?”

“Aboriginal land rights?”

“paid maternity leave for public servants?”

“lowering the minimum voting age to 18 years?”

“fair electoral boundaries and Senate representation for the Territories?

Our own National Anthem

A University in Western Sydney”

“Apart from all of this, what did this Roman ever do for us?”

 

These are, by any measure, an impressive list of achievements.

 

Gough Whitlam’s legacy is the improvement of the lives of all Australians, all over this country, those he gave choices to, single mothers, the young people who were the first in their families to gain a tertiary education that would not have otherwise been possible, improved healthcare, where it was no longer a choice between a visit to the doctor or food on the table.

 

He believed that all people mattered and that there should be opportunities provided to improve their lot in life.

 

Whilst Mr Whitlam will be missed, as members of the ALP we will continue to fight for the ideals he stood for and believed in and will strive to make Australia and Liverpool a better place for all its citizens.  

 

On behalf of my family and the community that I represent, I offer my deepest condolences to Gough’s family and especially his four children; Antony, Nicholas, Stephen and Catherine and his grandchildren. I am sure his loss will leave a large hole in their family.

 

It’s time to say goodbye now. Mr Whitlam you leave us with a better life and profoundly grateful that you were our comrade, our neighbour, our advocate, our local member, and  our Prime Minister and for many people like me, our hero. 

 

Perhaps one, overused but highly appropriate word describes the Hon Edward Gough Whitlam best; he is a “Legend.”

 

 

The Hon. Edward Gough Whitlam (read by Clr Waller)

 

The majority of us gathered here this evening are well aware of Gough Whitlam a man who was a local, a father, husband and who was a long time representative of this area and a former Prime Minister of Australia.

 

He has sadly passed away aged 98 on the 21st of October 2014.

 

He and his wife Margaret Whitlam were both very much a part of the local community for many, many years and very much a part of the political landscape. They are once again reunited.

 

Gough Whitlam was Prime Minister for three years from 1972 to 1975.  Australia saw it as ‘it’s time’ and voted to make Gough Whitlam who was the leader of the ALP, the 21st Prime Minister of Australia.

 

Australia was emerging from a very conservative era into a modern world. In a sense the symbolic nature of Whitlam being the 21st Prime Minister in itself was a coming of age action, he helped bring Australia into that modern world. It was time.

 

What affected me and family members greatly at the time of his election in a positive manner was; the end to conscription, the improvement of wages for the armed forces, Medicare, changing the voting age from 21 to 18, free university study, opening dialogue with China and indigenous recognition.

 

For the first time, I saw first-hand how policy could affect the quality of life of people. Gough and his Government did this, they understood this.

 

He understood the class divide, he wanted equity in Australia and strove to ensure infrastructure for the everyday issues such as child care, libraries, art and culture, even including the provision for sewerage in the suburbs as a priority.

 

I was fortunate to meet both Gough and Margaret Whitlam a few times, the last time I met Gough Whitlam was in 2004 when we had a cup of tea at the old council chambers and we discussed the future of local government and how politics was a tough road to tread.

 

Gough Whitlam’s love of art and culture never waned. His passion and commitment for social justice also continued.

 

He believed in himself without doubt and Margaret had the ability to ground him and advise him. As a team they were impeccable, both were respected for their passion, intelligence and commitment to the Australian people and to the Australian landscape.

 

A person larger than life has left us, but what Gough Whitlam achieved has and will stand the test of time.

 

We are better nation for it.

 

May he rest in peace.

Mayoral Minute

SUBJECT: Korean War Memorial

 

Council has received representation from the Returned and Services League of Australia - City of Liverpool Sub-Branch regarding the installation of a plaque commemorating those Australians killed or missing in action (K.I.A or M.I.A) during the Korean War (1950-1953).

Over 17,000 Australians served during the Korean War, of which 340 were killed and over 1,500 were wounded. A further 29 had become prisoners of war. There are still 43 Australians missing in action. It is important that we properly commemorate their service and sacrifice.

I am advised that this memorial would be in keeping with existing memorials in the semicircular garden in front of the war memorial and would not generate an impact on the significance of Bigge Park. This memorial would be an important addition to the commemorative war memorial garden.

I am informed that installation of an appropriate plinth and plaque supplied by the Korea War Veterans Association NSW would not require a development application. It will honour those missing in action and as well as those killed in action specifically from the Liverpool area.

 

RECOMMENDATION:

 

That Council:

 

1.    Approve installation of a suitable plinth and plaque supplied by the Korean War Veterans Association NSW and RSL Sub-Branch in the War memorial garden of Bigge Park.

 

2.    Organise and conclude installation of the memorial prior to ANZAC Day 2015.

 

3.    Expresses its thanks to the Returned and Services League of Australia - City of Liverpool Sub-Branch and Korean War Veterans Association NSW for their hard work and ongoing representation on this matter and their continued contribution to the Liverpool community.

 

4.    Authorises the CEO to dedicate appropriate resources to complete this project.

 

Motion:   Moved: Mayor Mannoun

 

That the recommendation be adopted.

 

On being put to the meeting the motion was declared CARRIED.

 

 

Mayoral Minute

SUBJECT: Community Christmas Kitchen

 

The recent visit by the new Governor General, His Excellency General the Honourable Sir Peter Cosgrove AK MC, has highlighted as part of anti-poverty week the demand in our community for services such as the Inspire Church-run community kitchen, which provides meals and support to those in need in our community.

I was very moved by the experience at the community kitchen. After a discussion with Pastor Mike Myer, I became aware of their annual Christmas Kitchen at which they provide an early Christmas lunch for up to 250 of the needy from our community.

Whilst we have big plans to redevelop Liverpool and help this city achieve its real potential, we must not lose sight of those who might not be in a position, for whatever circumstances, to take full advantage of our growing prosperity. Our Council provides many services and support to those in need in our community, in partnership with a range of institutions including but not limited to Inspire, Salvation Army, CatholicCare, Liverpool Youth Accommodation Assistance Company and of course St Vincent De Paul. Demand for their services is always strong and especially at Christmas period.

I was also moved to recently visit the Food for Life Market at Warwick Farm where volunteers provide fresh fruit and vegetables for over 600 active members within the community. Demand for their services operated in conjunction with Food Bank and the Salvation Army continues to increase.

I propose that Council this year host a Community Christmas Kitchen in partnership with Inspire Church and open to any community members needing assistance and also support the work of Food for Life.

 

Recommendation:

RECOMMENDATION:

That Council:

  1. Host the Mayor and Council Community Christmas Kitchen in principle partnership with Inspire Church/Liverpool Community Kitchen and Hub for 2014.

 

  1. Donate $5000 to the Salvation Army – Food for Life (Warwick Farm and Busby) program to go towards local community Christmas demand.

 

  1. Authorises the Chief Executive Officer to apply appropriate resources for this project from Council reserves.

 

  1. Congratulates Council staff involved with organising the very successful recent visit to Liverpool by Governor General, His Excellency General the Honourable Sir Peter Cosgrove and Lady Cosgrove.

 

Motion:   Moved: Mayor Mannoun

 

That the recommendation be adopted.

 

On being put to the meeting the motion was declared CARRIED.

 

 


 

Mayoral Minute

SUBJECT: Casula and Sensitive land uses 

 

On Saturday the 18th October 2014, Council held a day long Mayor and Councillor Mobile Office including a session in the afternoon regarding the Development Application for a proposed Hotel at the site of the Fontainebleu Motel (DA 1454/2013). This meeting was strongly attended by members of the Casula community and Councillors Stanley, Hadchiti, Hadid and myself as well as the Member for Menai Melanie Gibbons MP.

 

At the meeting I was very moved by the stories of residents whose lives had been adversely impacted by alcohol and gambling.  The position that was made abundantly clear to all those present at the meeting is that the residents of Casula do not want outlets for alcohol or gambling in close proximity to schools or residential areas.

 

I understand and share their concern.

 

Given the potential adverse social impacts of alcohol and gambling on the community it makes good sense to investigate what action Council can take to prevent future proposals for such outlets in close proximity to schools or residential areas.

 

RECOMMENDATION:

 

That Council:

 

1.    Expresses its thanks to the residents of Casula for their continuous vigilance in bringing their concerns to Council.

 

2.    Direct Council officers to investigate the options available to Council to restrict alcohol or gambling outlets in near proximity to residential areas including the potential the rezoning of land and restrictions through the Development Control Plan (DCP). Staff should report on this matter at the next Council meeting.

 

Motion:   Moved: Mayor Mannoun

 

That the recommendation be adopted.

 

On being put to the meeting the motion was declared CARRIED.
