Mr HASTIE (Canning) (13:59): It's an enormous privilege to stand in this House and be the member for Canning once again. I thank the Canning representatives for putting their trust in me.

To them I say this: the next three years are about delivery—delivering on those commitments that we made to the Peel region. Firstly, that's in health care, delivering the $25 million this government has committed to the Peel Health Campus, the single biggest investment into that hospital since it started in 1997.

Roads: this government has committed more than half a billion dollars to extending the Tonkin Highway deep into the Peel region, getting trucks off our streets and out of our neighbourhoods and opening up more opportunities for private investment. We are going to put a roundabout at Thomas Road and Nicholson Road and prevent more accidents like what has occurred over the last five to 10 years. We're going to build the Pinjarra Heavy Haulage Deviation and get 100 trucks every day out of the Pinjarra township, helping that place realise its full potential as a tourist town.

When it comes to rail, we are going to deliver the Lakelands Train Station. This government delivered $37 million. The Labor state government is standing in the way, but we're going to make sure that that long-awaited train station is built. These are just some of the things that I look forward to delivering, along with the Morrison government, over the next three years.

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