Unlike the other side, we do not have a theme day—where they concentrate not on their constituents but on their political efforts. Over on this side, we actually care about what is happening on the ground in our electorates.

I would like to endorse an excellent proposal under the Safer Streets program for a CCTV system in the Wangara area. I know that the Wanneroo Business Association has been working with the City of Wanneroo on a very good project to help local businesses with crime issues in their area. CCTV is to be deployed on major exit points from the Wangara area and this will help to put pressure on the criminals. It will also help to lower the rates on insurance premiums as crime is put under better control. That is an excellent thing.

I would like to pay tribute to Vesna Sampson, the President of the Wanneroo Business Association, and the City of Wanneroo for advancing this very good project. I certainly endorse it and I look forward to its proper consideration in the usual manner. It is going to provide great value for the businesses in the Wangara area and I look forward to its successful conclusion.
