    Recently Mary met with the Dutch Ambassador, Her Excellency Mrs Annemicke Ruigrok, as she visited the Assembly to sign a Condolence Book for victims of the MH17 tragedy.

    Mary has got to know the Dutch Ambassador since her study tour of The Netherlands last June and maintains this relationship by attending events hosted by the Embassy whenever possible.

    “I was also glad to be able to meet with the Ambassador at the Dutch Embassy recently and sign their Condolences Book. I am deeply saddened by the downing of flight MH17 and I send my deepest respects to all those affected by the tragedy,” Mary said.

    “It is important that we join together during such times to express our grief. I invite you all to visit the ACT Legislative Assembly to write your condolences in the Condolences Book, it will be available at the public entrance for an extended period.” Mary said.
