Mr CRAIG KELLY (Hughes) (13:59): It has certainly been a hot summer, possibly as hot as the summer 120 years ago in 1896. Tomorrow, in my electorate, down in Sutherland, they are expecting 38 degrees, and, to the west of the electorate, they are expecting 41 degrees. Many of the residents of Sydney will come home tomorrow and want to turn their air conditioning on, but unfortunately, with electricity prices already double that of the USA, there will be many hardworking Australians who will be unable to afford their electricity bills. But at least they do not live in South Australia, where they will be lucky if their electricity even works.

The SPEAKER: In accordance with standing order 43, the time for members' statements has concluded.
