WEST AUSTRALIAN MUSIC INDUSTRY AWARDS

HON ALISON XAMON (North Metropolitan) [5.23 pm]: Last night, after Parliament rose, I had the opportunity to attend the West Australian Music Industry Awards, and it was a wonderful opportunity. For people who may not be aware, WA Music is supported by the state government through the Department of Culture and the Arts. It is also assisted by the federal government through the Australia Council as the federal arts funding body. I have been to the WAMAwards several times over the years and I really enjoy being able to attend them.

SUICIDE PREVENTION — YOUNG PEOPLE WITH DISABILITY

HON ALISON XAMON (North Metropolitan) [10.05 pm]: As members know, I have a particular interest in suicide prevention. I am aware, of course, that the suicide prevention 2020 plan is currently under review and that the Ministerial Council for Suicide Prevention is considering which areas of the population need to receive particular attention in the next plan. It is in that vein that I rise to talk about a particular population group that to date has not necessarily received the level of attention that it potentially needs.
