Constituency questions – Diggers Rest Recreation Reserve

Mr J. BULL (Sunbury) (11:51:16) — (14 672) My constituency question is for the Minister for Sport, and I ask: what are the construction timelines for the new lights at the Diggers Rest Recreation Reserve in my electorate? Last week I was thrilled to join committee members, players, supporters and hardworking locals as well as the CEO and mayor of the Melton City Council to announce $100 000 for new lights in a partnership. As you will know, Acting Speaker Spence, I spent some years training and playing on oval 1 at the Diggers Rest Recreation Reserve. There is no doubt that these new lights are needed. I was thrilled when the Minister for Sport confirmed this funding through the country football netball program, yet another project ignored by those opposite. This government gets things done and builds sporting facilities that our communities deserve. I ask the minister for the construction timelines for the new lights.
