    Statement from the Premier

    Each year, 150,000 Australians are diagnosed with cancer.

    The Member for Stretton, Duncan Pegg, recently discovered he is one of them.

    Duncan is tireless worker for his community and will continue representing his electorate but there are going to be times when his treatment will understandably come first.

    As he told Parliament today, he is lucky to be surrounded by the support of his friends and family as well as his colleagues and electorate staff.

    Duncan looks forward to continuing to represent his local community.

    “I would ask for understanding and prayers while I am receiving treatment,” he said.

    “I also remind all Queenslanders to remain vigilant regarding their health and for men especially to make friends with the their family doctor.”
