Groom Electorate; Issue of Writ
As I informed the House on Tuesday, I received a letter on 18 September 2020 from the Hon. Dr John McVeigh resigning his seat as a member for the electoral division of Groom. I would now like to inform the House that it is my intention to issue a writ on Monday 26 October 2020 for an election of a member to serve for the electoral division of Groom in the state of Queensland. The dates in connection with the by-election will be fixed as follows: close of rolls—Monday 2 November 2020; close of nominations—Thursday 5 November 2020; polling day—Saturday 28 November 2020; return of writ—on or before Wednesday 3 February 2021.
