Ms Quigley must leave at 11 a.m. We will divide the meeting into two sections. Normally, members would get nine or ten minutes but we are going to give just five minutes for the opening session so that people can ask questions of either group or both. They will get another five minutes in the second round. Ms Quigley made the point that the community role is crucial. Will she explain how the community role emerged? Was it because of a complete gap in services? If these groups do not get the necessary funding, what would that mean for communities such as those she represents?
