Award winning intern reports

Nov 27, 2019 | News, Parliament

Mr BARTON (Eastern Metropolitan) (10:21): I rise today to congratulate two young women who participated in this year’s parliamentary internship program and worked with my team to produce outstanding reports on pressing transport issues within my community.

Award winning reports from our Parliamentary Interns

We are very proud of the hard work from our parliamentary interns this year. Georgia Bishop’s business case to include Doncaster in Stage 1 of the Suburban R…

Georgia Bishop from the Australian Catholic University wrote a business case for including Doncaster in stage 1 of the Suburban Rail Loop. She presents a solid case to add the link between Box Hill and Doncaster, and I was proud to pass her work to the Suburban Rail Loop Authority and Minister Allan’s team following a recent briefing. Georgia was presented with the Presiding Officers’ Prize for the most outstanding intern report.

The runner-up report this year was created by our semester 1 intern, Nakshi Mehta. Her report investigated the competing light rail and heavy rail options sponsored by the state and federal governments respectively and provided solid recommendations on how to move forward with this long-awaited and much-needed piece of infrastructure.

I am very proud of the work done by these ladies: two very useful pieces of research and recommendations that will help me lobby the transport infrastructure projects in my electorate. It was a joy working with these young interns. They were a welcome addition to our team during their time with us.
