Mr HIBBINS (Prahran) (By leave) — I rise to express my condolences for the lives lost in the terrorist attack in Manchester. Manchester is one of the few cities outside Melbourne that I have been lucky enough to live in and call home, and while my time there was relatively short, it is a city that I will always know and love. It is a city full of passionate people who care deeply about the things that give Manchester its identity — about social justice, about football, about music and even Corrie. It is a city that, like Melbourne, celebrates its ethnic diversity and its LGBTI communities and it is a city that is now hurting and is now coming together.

It is so saddening that we are here again mourning lives lost and condemning a terrorist attack that, whatever the hate-filled motivation, will never achieve what the attacker wants, while 22 people — young children with so much more to give and with family and friends who love them — have been killed, with many more injured or witnesses to terror. I offer my deepest condolences to those who died, who were injured and who lost loved ones. To everyone in Manchester and to all Mancunians, we are with you.
