On Thursday, the NSW Parliament elected Sam Farraway to a seat in the Legislative Council at a joint sitting of both Houses, and we debated 10 motions and passed six orders for government documents.

On the first sitting day in October, the House bid farewell to Nationals member Niall Blair and passed a bill to dissolve Roads and Maritime Services and transfer its functions to Transport for NSW.
