SHARK nets have once again become an important issue, with the shark attacks earlier this year.

Few beaches are installed with shark nets and even if the Government installs nets at public beaches, it will take time before all public beaches have nets.

I therefore believe that the Government should improve the service provided by its pools. More public pools should be built, opening times of existing facilities should be increased, and entrance fees should be lowered.

In these ways, more people will be attracted to the safe environment of the swimming pools.
