Mr IRONS (Swan) (16:31): Today, I hosted a delegation from the West Coast Eagles. Amongst that delegation, and in the gallery today, was the 2014 AFL Brownlow medallist, Matt Priddis, along with the new captain of the West Coast Eagles, Shannon Hurn. The West Coast Eagles delegation are here to speak to the government about a proposal for a new office and location for their headquarters, at Lathlain, in my electorate.

Sitting suspended from 16 : 32 to 16 : 47

Mr IRONS: As I was saying before the suspension, the relocation of the West Coast Eagles facilities to my electorate of Swan in the suburb of Lathlain will be an economic and community boost and a social impact boost for the area of Lathlain as well. Already in anticipation of the move we have seen a rise in housing prices and we have seen the town of Victoria Park focusing on redirecting infrastructure funding to that area to ensure not only that the facilities are well enhanced but also that the area surrounding it gets the full benefit of having a $70 million project. So, to the West Coast Eagles, a proud AFL club that has won three premierships in the 28 years, congratulations. I wish them luck with their efforts.
