Rachel PAYNE (South-Eastern Metropolitan) (12:45): 

My constituency question is for the Minister for Emergency Services, Minister Symes. My constituent is a resident of Seaford and a young mother. As the weather starts to heat up my constituent and many of her friends are getting out and heading down to the gorgeous local beaches in the area. My constituent is concerned about the safety of young children, including her own, when at these beaches. They have raised concerns about risky behaviour of several jet ski users on these waters and point out that in 2021–22, 53 people fatally drowned within Victorian waterways. My constituent asks: what is the minister doing to ensure jet ski users’ risky behaviour is monitored, keeping young children safe on Victorian beaches this summer?

Written Answer
Received: 25 March 2024
Hon. Jaclyn Symes
(Attorney-General, Minister for Emergency Services)

I thank the member for her question.

As the matter raised regarding jet ski users on Victorian waterways does not fall within my portfolio responsibilities, the member may consider redirecting their question to the Hon Anthony Carbines MP, Minister for Police.

[ENDS]
