Australian citizenship celebrated

MEMBER for Blair Shayne Neumann yesterday welcomed Queensland’s new Australian citizens who took part in special citizenship ceremonies across the state.

Mr Neumann said Queensland gained about 3000 new citizens at about 60 ceremonies to mark Australia Day across the state, as the rebuilding effort continues after the devastating floods.

“Our new Australian citizens are among some 13,000 people who took the citizenship pledge at more than 320 citizenship ceremonies across the country today,” Mr Neumann said.

“Australia Day is such a special day for all Australians, and especially for those becoming Australian citizens.

“I have personally welcomed almost 80 new Australians at two different ceremonies in my electorate of Blair.

“Today they made a formal commitment to this country and together we can all celebrate what it means to be an Australian.”
