Member for Parkes Mark Coulton has thrown down the gauntlet to the new Federal Labor government to continue funding expansion of the Macquarie Home Stay.

Last week Mr Coulton today accompanied the Shadow Assistant Minister for Regional Development, Dr Anne Webster, on a visit to the accommodation facility, to build on his advocacy for the project.

Dr Webster said it is important in her role as Shadow Assistant Minister that she understands projects throughout regional Australia that are a priority for her National Party colleagues and the communities they serve.

“In May, Mr Coulton announced $2.45 million for Dubbo’s Macquarie Home Stay under a re-elected Coalition Government because he recognised the evident needs in the community and advocated hard to see them addressed,” Dr Webster said.

“It is important that the Albanese Government understands the significance of this project and how vital it is to the people of western NSW.

“The previous government had a proven commitment to rural Australia, and we will continue to fight for the recognition of key infrastructure in the regions.”
