Ms VAGHELA (Western Metropolitan) (12:44:33): My constituency question is directed to the Minister for Roads, Minister for Road Safety and the TAC and Minister for Fishing and Boating, the Honourable Jaala Pulford. My question to the minister relates to her portfolio responsibilities of fishing and boating. The Andrews Labor government is making it cheaper and easier for more Victorian families to get out on the water by abolishing parking and launching fees at public boat ramps. The abolition of fees at the Warmies boat ramp is the first step in delivering on this major commitment in my electorate and will save families up to $315 a year on an annual parking permit. My question to the minister is: can the minister give me an update on the expected time line for the rollout of this initiative to the remaining boating ramps in my electorate of Western Metropolitan Region, which includes the Altona boat ramp, Werribee South boat ramp and Williamstown boat ramp?
