Mr BILLSON (Dunkley) (13:59): There was a disturbing assault on a metropolitan train service in Melbourne where a very large gentleman—a somewhat larger unit than me—was assaulted by two young women in a very ugly event that has caused quite a lot of concern for those who are using public transport in Melbourne. I urge the government to consider the use of modern technology to be able to discretely alert authorities, security and the protective services officers who are available to these episodes so that people can travel in safety and join up that security response to actual episodes. Use an app. Use the technology. It is available and will make a real difference.
