Baulkham Hills MP welcomes return of Knights and Dames

Baulkham Hills MP David Elliott is all for the return of Knighthoods and Dames, announced by Prime Minister Tony Abbott.

“For too long our nation has been haunted by those who have sought to install republicanism by stealth,” Mr Elliott said.

The campaign manager for the ‘No’ cause during the 1999 republic referendum, he said this is a positive move to acknowledge the public mood and the extraordinary service of Australians who go above and beyond the call of duty.

“I congratulate Her Excellency the Honourable Dame Quentin Bryce AD CVO on her elevation to this position and I look forward to seeing General Peter Cosgrove AC MC elevated to the rank of Knight upon his ascension to the role of Governor General,” Mr Elliott said.
