SEYMOUR RAIL SERVICE

Due to the lateness of the hour and the tensions between those members that just left the chamber, I think I will make a very short contribution. That does not mean it is not important; it is very important. I wish to raise an adjournment matter for the Minister for Public Transport, and the action I seek from her is a plan to improve services on the Seymour line. Until recently I was a regular user of this line, and when this line functioned well, door to door, from Doreen to Parliament, I was able to get here in under an hour.

I want to thank the users of this line, which is struggling with increased patronage, who have made me and my upper house colleague Jaclyn Symes aware of their concerns. I am really hopeful that I will be able to help them resolve some of their concerns and that the minister will be able to have a plan to resolve this. I will shortly be meeting with Nicole and Sally, who are regular users of the line, to discuss their concerns and how I can be of assistance. I urge the minister to act.
