Mr CREWTHER (Dunkley) (13:43): On the Friday after the budget, Treasurer Scott Morrison and I visited Seaford Senior Citizens Club and the University of the Third Age to talk about how we're helping seniors stay in their homes and make their own choices for longer, as well as how we're aiding pensioners and retirees in this year's budget.

I then joined Minister Hunt, the Minister for Health, at Frankston Hospital to discuss new PBS listings such as Spinraza to help people with spinal muscular atrophy—people like Ally Clarke in my electorate—live a long and happy life, as well as the benefits of our $225 million for hospital connectivity.

On Tuesday morning, Minister Fletcher and I hosted a round table with key stakeholders on our $225 million rail project which will extend Metro Rail to stations servicing Frankston Hospital, Monash University, Karingal, Langwarren and Baxter.

That night, the Prime Minister formally opened the new Dunkley electorate office at 37 Playne Street and hosted a successful Politics in the Pub at Seaford Hotel. The next morning, Minister McVeigh visited, marking the delivery of a new jet ski for Frankston Life Saving Club named after Mary Ricca, as well as the Empire Mall opening in Mornington. I was also then visited by Minister Cash, who spoke to local businesses and toured Bolwell, the largest full-body commercial car manufacturer still in Australia, as well as the Brotherhood of St Lawrence, to announce $700,000 for the youth employment body.

The 2018-19 federal budget is very important for Dunkley.
