    Around half of all Australian boys are active through a sports club during their childhood compared with just 33 per cent of girls, and the participation rate for girls drops sharply after girls turn 12. I encourage all local clubs and sporting organisations to use this opportunity to boost their female programs and events, because we want to see girls not only take to the field, but stay on the field.

    "Now, before I pick up the guitar and sing ..." let's celebrate the opening of the new Jingellic Pavilion -- a project which came about through the hard work and clever fund-sourcing of so many in the Jingellic Show and Jingellic, New South Wales community. Thanks also to Snowy Valleys and NSW Treasurer Dominic Perrottet.This place will be really useful!

    On Saturday I had the pleasure of presenting the NSW SES Holbrook Unit with a new $215,000 state-of-the-art emergency response vehicle. We place the highest priority on the safety of NSW SES volunteers by making sure they have the necessary equipment to carry out their life saving work. In the last 12 months this unit of 14 volunteers has responded to more than 27 emergency tasks. On the day I also officially awarded 11 volunteers with Long Service Awards and National medals. Terrific team! Life saving work! Holbrook, New South Wales Troy Grant

    Thanks for the opportunity to comment although I am not in your electorate. I have a serious degenerative lung condition. If it progresses as expected I will not be breathing at the end. I will be suffocating and I don't want anyone else to tell me to "keep gurgling". I want to choice because no-one else can possibly know when it becomes intolerable to me. I support Voluntary Assisted Dying if all the safeguards are in place.

    Greg, thank you for asking for comment on Voluntary Assisted Dying choice. I will be up front and say that I do not reside in Albury Electorate, but my reasons for strongly supporting this issue are similar to the majority of voters in your Electorate and all of NSW. We all know someone for whom the best palliative care has not been enough to relieve their futile suffering in their last days. To list some of the reasons why I support - - My sister-in-law Joyce, who died this year after ovarian cancer spread to her liver and bones. The option of an assisted death would have spared her the suffering of her last days, and greatly diminished the grieving of her husband and family. - Aunty Dorothy Williams, who died a horrendous death from bladder cancer. Her body was rotting from the inside while she was still alive! - Murray White, who was 'best man' at our wedding, who died a terrible prolonged death from Parkinson's and associated Lewy body dementia. - Cousin Glenda, who fought the ravages of cancer for many years, and whose final days were anything but peaceful. - D’arcy White, whose last days were agonising as he slowly died from anal cancer.
