Ms STANLEY (Werriwa) (16:34): Labor is for a fair go in south-western Sydney. As their local member, it's my job to stand up for the residents of the south-west, and I stand in this place to help give them the best possible circumstances to thrive. We in the Labor Party want south-west-Sydneysiders to have the maximum time with their families and minimal time commuting. That's why state and federal Labor will invest in commuter car-parking infrastructure at major railway stations in Werriwa. We will invest $18 million in new spaces at Edmondson Park station. We're investing $16 million in new spaces at Leppington station.

Just as Labor are invested in minimising commute times for residents of south-west Sydney, so, too, are we committed to improving the home lives of our hardworking constituents. I continue to be appalled at the fact that suburbs in my electorate, like Denham Court, a mere 30 kilometres from the Sydney CBD, are yet to have full sewerage link-ups. Denham Court has many businesses, a large childcare facility and a large shopping complex, all operating without connection to suburban sewerage systems. We want the health and wellbeing of residents, along with waterways such as Cabramatta Creek, to be protected for years to come. This is why Labor will continue to fight to give a fair go to the home and working lives of residents. It is appalling that, as the member for Werriwa in 2018, I have to bring up sewerage that the previous member brought up in 1972.
