Ms HALL (6:53 PM) —I would like to acknowledge and pay tribute to the life of Mr Alby Burgin. He was a Freeman of the City of Lake Macquarie and he died last week. He was a committed sailor. Days before he died, he was sailing on Lake Macquarie. He was 93 years of age. He was a regular attendee at every citizenship ceremony at Lake Macquarie. He was a truly great and committed Lake Macquarie resident and a person who cared about and worked to serve Lake Macquarie at all times.

I would also like to bring to the attention of the House an issue I have raised on many occasions, which is a post office at Jewells. I have referred many petitions to the Petitions Committee. I have with me today a folder of letters of support for the post office at Jewells. I seek leave to table that folder and ask that that folder be given to the Petitions Committee because it contains a lot of information that would be very helpful to them in their deliberations. It supports those petitions that they have already received and also the fact that we need a post office at Jewells.

Leave granted.


The DEPUTY SPEAKER (Mr S Georganas)—Order! In accordance with standing order 192A the time for members’ statements has concluded.
