CAPE PATERSON SURF LIFE SAVING CLUB

I rise today to congratulate the Cape Paterson Surf Life Saving Club. Its president, Dean Manns, along with other advocates, including Kate McLaughlin, have done so much to be able to secure funding totalling $3.2 million from the Andrews Labor government, alongside $500 000 from Bass Coast Shire Council and an incredible $800 000 raised by the local community.

FEDERAL HEALTH FUNDING

It is a sign of the disregard of the federal government — the coalition — for Victoria and for regional Victoria when we look at the cuts to health and hospital funding which it has imposed to the tune of over $2 billion across the state.

CONSTITUENCY QUESTIONS

It is good to be back. My question is for the Minister for Roads and Road Safety, and I ask him about the work in relation to the introduction of flexible wire safety barriers throughout Gippsland and along major roads not just as far as Central Gippsland through to the Latrobe Valley but down into South Gippsland.

PLANNING SCHEME AMENDMENT GC65

WONTHAGGI SECONDARY COLLEGE

It was a fantastic win for the Wonthaggi community last Friday when Premier Daniel Andrews and I attended Wonthaggi Secondary College to confirm $31 million in funding for a brand new school and additional sporting facilities as part of our commitment to making sure that we deliver what the Liberals cannot and would not deliver when they were last in government.

LIFELINE GIPPSLAND

I rise today to congratulate the various members of Lifeline Gippsland and the work that was undertaken in recent times to take three miniature alpacas on a jaunt through town.

CAPE PATERSON SURF LIFE SAVING CLUB

On another matter, it was absolutely fantastic to return to the Cape Paterson Surf Life Saving Club to confirm that the Andrews Labor government will fund $2.3 million to make sure that this club can be rebuilt with the facilities that it needs and deserves to keep Victorians safe, to enhance the work of its volunteers and to provide the education around marine safety that is so crucial.
