Hi Folks, 

Ever since the start of COVID-19 lockdowns and restrictions my team and I have been dealing with the community fall out. Changes made on the fly always have unintended  consequences, consequences that have a negative impact on our community. We’ve been working hard to sort these issues out and lobby the Government for changes on your behalf, I’m pleased to say we have had a lot of success in this area, changing the Health Orders on many occasions to work better for Barwon.

Off the back of lobbying by myself and fellow Parliamentarians, NSW Parliament will return to regular sitting from next month. I have been lobbying for Parliament’s return since 8 April. Government has had long enough without oversight and scrutiny. 

The Premier has also backed my parties call for a freeze on Politicians wages (almost a month after we first called for it). At a time where we might see the highest unemployment in a lifetime, those with a higher taxpayer funded salary should not be getting any more. Ordinary Public Service roles, distributed throughout NSW should get a 2.5% increase. That money will circulate through local economies. That helps everyone.

We have also had great success getting the 4-square metre rule adopted for restaurants, cafes, pubs and clubs. As per discussions with the Premier’s office, arbitrary numbers of 10 and 20 patrons were a bad fit.

My request to Government was to use the 4-square metre rule so that social distancing could be maintained, and larger venues could trade. From 1 June that will be adopted.

Please stay safe and look out for each other. If you need help, my team and I are here for you.

Roy

Visitors to return to Barwon

From 1 June, recreational travel will be allowed across the State.

This doesn’t change the need for everyone to be vigilant. 

The virus is still out there, it’s just as contagious and just as dangerous.

We all need to follow the public health rules, 1.5 meters from people, frequent hand sanitation, keeping your hands away from your face and eyes.

These changes will bring increased movement of people, which will mean people in our communities’ spending money at our local businesses. To keep the virus at bay we all need to maintain the high level of vigilance in regards to how we use it.

This change does not mean you need to get out and about, if you're still worried, concerned, or in a high-risk group keep doing what you're doing.

Health concerns in the West make front-page news 

Together with Cobar locals, I have been working on a number of stories with the Sydney Morning Herald to highlight what’s going on with our health system in Barwon.

Through a series of stories over the course of last week, the paper highlighted a number of troubling incidents out west.

Sadly, it’s an all too familiar story for us, a trip to the local hospital ends with someone packed up into an ambulance or plane and taken to a bigger centre.

The health system is spending millions every year on these evacuations. What’s hidden is the cost to all of us, the many trips we have to take to seek care - paying out of our own back pocket, and the people that pack up and leave our towns because the risk to their health and the toll it’s taking is simply too much.

Our health workers in Barwon are fantastic; I support them wholeheartedly and back them every day of the week. This week I am meeting with representatives of the NSW Nurses and Midwives Association to talk about the issues facing our nurses and the changes they would like to see in our community hospitals. 

The NSW Government cannot keep doing the same thing and expecting a different outcome. The health system in regional NSW is seriously broken. It’s going to take more than new hospital buildings to fix it.

Are you undergoing dialysis and live in Barwon

If you or someone you know is currently undergoing Renal Dialysis and live anywhere in the Barwon electorate we would like to hear from you. We’re especially interested in hearing from people who are required to travel to receive this service. Likewise, if you’re a community service proving travel assistance for people undergoing dialysis in other towns we would like to hear from you.

We would like to know about the level of assistance you have received from NSW Health, whether there are improvements that can be made, and generally your experience with the system.

Please email barwon@parliament.nsw.gov.au

Small Business COVID-19 Support Grant – closes 1 June!

Applications for the $10,000 Small Business COVID-19 Support Grant close at the end of the month. There is still over $500 million remaining in this fund for small businesses who are struggling due to the impacts of COVID-19.

I understand a number of businesses have started applications and self-assessed that they wouldn’t be eligible – please apply!

We are working with a number of businesses and are in regular contact with Minister Dominello’s office to sort out issues businesses are having with applications. We cannot assist if you haven’t submitted an application.

I’d prefer to see this money in the hands of our small businesses – so please apply and then get in touch with my offices.

Still going strong - a political party as tough as Ian Sinclair

He's one of our longest serving politicians and immensely proud of the Nationals' achievements, but Ian Sinclair is also disappointed by some of today's MPs.
