Labor’s bushfire recovery ‘plan’ long overdue

A bushfire recovery ‘plan’ announced by the Andrews Labor Government today seems to be nothing more than a poor attempt at window dressing.

Rolling old money up in a new press release delivers nothing for families, businesses and communities in East Gippsland and north east Victoria hit by January’s catastrophic bushfires.

It’s eight months since the fires swept through the state – these funds should have flowed through immediately.

Why has it taken Daniel Andrews so long to follow through with a ‘plan’ to support communities to recover?

Even before the coronavirus pandemic hit, these fires left many doing it tough and COVID-19 shutdowns have only made the pressure worse.

Communities will be right to question if this is just another thinly-veiled attempt from Labor to rebadge old funds in a glossy new document.

Peter Walsh MP

Shadow Minister for Bushfire Recovery
