Peter Walsh MP:
Labor re-launches a website, not a population policy

The Andrews Labor Government hasn’t got a population plan for Victoria, but today they have restarted the old Regional Living promotional campaign they axed three years ago.

"Daniel Andrews might have dusted off the old Regional Living website, but the Premier for Melbourne still doesn’t have a vision or a plan for growing regional Victoria.

"People who live in the country now are frustrated by a poor rail network, increasing cost of energy, and deteriorating country roads and on top of that there is a regional jobs crisis that has seen thousands of jobs disappear from our regional industries in the last few months.

"Victoria needs a whole of state population plan, not just a website, and that’s why the Liberal Nationals are already on the job with our Population Policy Taskforce."
