State Member for Wallsend, Ms Sonia Hornery MP, will again be working hard to hold the Government to account on a number of issues in the Wallsend electorate when Parliament resumes this week.

Ms Hornery has submitted a number of Questions on Notice to Government Ministers, following up on issues such as the failed audit at the Wallsend Aged Care Facility and waiting times at the John Hunter Hospital.

Ms Hornery will also be moving a number of Notices of Motion on issues such as the outsourcing of English language courses at Hunter TAFE and support for vital research into brain cancer in children under the age of 15.

Quotes attributable to Member for Wallsend, Sonia Hornery

“I’m determined to hit the ground running when Parliament resumes this week, with Questions on Notice and Notices of Motion designed to hold the Government to account.

“I have spent the Winter recess speaking with and listening to the community, and have a number of policy issues that need following up with the Government.”

“I will be asking a number of Questions and moving Notices of Motions calling on the Government to explain how the Wallsend Aged Care Facility failed a number of key benchmarks during a recent audit.”

“Waiting times for patients to access specialist services at the John Hunter Hospital and improving Newcastle to Central train services will also be high on the agenda.”

“We have schools in the Wallsend electorate that are in desperate need of maintenance and an understaffed Police Force that is trying to deal with motorbikes that are terrorising our local suburbs.”

“I am looking forward to Parliament resuming and the opportunity to stand up for the Wallsend electorate.”
