Mr QUICK (1:50 PM) —Twelve months ago today, Zoe Dee Hart lost her life in a tragic accident. Zoe was 21 months old at the time of her death. She was strangled by a blind cord in her parents' bedroom. Deanne and her friend Bronwyn have been working tirelessly through the media to alert parents to the danger of blind cord strangulation. I would like to thank the Australian blind manufacturers who have worked tirelessly to ensure that advice is given out with every new blind sold. National safety standards are now being implemented so that there are fewer chances for children to die. Finally, I would like to quote the lovely statement in today's Mercury:


It's now been a year since our precious daughter was here. We miss you like crazy, not a day goes by when we don't have a little cry.

She was as good as she was fair, none on Earth above her, as pure in thought as angels are; to know her was to love her. If only we could see the little smile upon your face and hold you with warm embrace.

You are our wonderful daughter Zoe Dee, but we know this just can't be. You are in our hearts and thoughts every day, we really wish you could be with us this day.

Miss you

Love Mum and Dad ...
