Ms ROWLAND (Greenway) (17:05): In the small amount of time I had left before I was rudely interrupted last night, I recall that I wanted to summarise by saying that this budget is important for the people of Greenway because it delivers on three key areas and is responsive to the needs of my constituents. The first area is jobs. Over 3,000 apprentices in Greenway stand to benefit tremendously from this government's ongoing investment in their training, which ensures that the right incentives are provided to apprentices as well as to the businesses who conduct the training to keep them on. Older members of my community lament that investment in apprenticeships and vocational training generally has not featured prominently in the last few years. It is terrific to see that that has been turned around.

In the area of health, I would like to thank the Minister for Health and Ageing for her continuing interest in the health needs of the Greenway constituency, particularly the MRI licensing reform, which will be extremely beneficial. Finally, I would like to thank the Parliamentary Secretary for Community Services, who is in the chamber, for coming to Greenway last week for that fantastic funding announcement for the Riverstone neighbourhood centre.
