heavenly vision?

MR J.E. McGRATH (South Perth) [12.44 pm]: The opposition will support this bill and its declaration as urgent. This is not so much to support the government as to support the Kalgoorlie-Boulder Racing Club. The club has indicated that it has for too long been restricted by legislation passed more than 100 years ago that meant it could not become an incorporated body and operate like other race clubs around Western Australia.

I am acting under some difficulty here, having left my reading glasses in my office. I am using the member for Murdoch’s spectacles.

The opposition has spoken to the Kalgoorlie-Boulder Racing Club. This bill gives that club the opportunity to become incorporated. It also cleans up some other technical issues in other legislation related to racing and wagering.


My spectacles have now been delivered to me by a messenger from above. That is very good. The member for Murdoch can have his spectacles back, and I promise that I will never borrow them again.

Mr J.C. Kobelke: Now you can see with both eyes!

Mr J.E. McGRATH: I can see the light!
