I am certainly delighted to be able to speak on the Public Health and Wellbeing Amendment (Hairdressing Registration) Bill 2015.
I am also pleased to add my comments with regard to this significant bill that is before the house. As a member representing areas of Ballarat East, it is particularly important that I add my comments in support of this bill. Well before the parliamentary inquiry of the Family and Community Development Committee took place last year, a number of residents from my electorate came to see me to discuss related matters.
Last night I was pleased to attend a Good Sports forum on tackling ice, alcohol and other drugs in our community.
