Ms KING (BallaratParliamentary Secretary for Infrastructure and Transport and Parliamentary Secretary for Health and Ageing) (22:29): Last Sunday I had the honour of attending the anniversary of the commemoration of the Australian Prisoner of War Memorial in my electorate. I want to put on the record just how appreciative I am of the hundreds of people who turn out each year supporting POWs and their family members to commemorate that memorial. It was a very solemn occasion because it was the first time we did not have David Baird, IM present, David having passed away fairly recently in his 90s. I again want to put on the record what an extraordinary person he was and what an incredible gift he has given to both our community and to the POW community in commemorating these some 35,000 Australian prisoners—a very fitting memorial and a fitting tribute to David.

Question agreed to.
