Gippsland East Nationals MP, Tim Bull said, "There is some important infrastructure that needs to be funded, in particular from a police and emergency services point of view. Funds are required for new fire stations at Metung and Lakes Entrance and the Orbost police station has long been in need of a large overhaul. I also visited Maffra police station last week and it's clear that it requires replacement to meet current day policing needs," he said.

Hoping for more improvement

Mr Bull also said, "From a health services perspective, I am aware that both Bairnsdale and Maffra hospitals require significant improvement and will continue to work with management at both agencies in an attempt to bring those projects to fruition. You never get everything you want in a Budget, but there is an expectation we get some of these projects ticked off."

"As we have seen in recent years, there is a high reliance on our emergency services in times of need and it is important we continue to invest in the facilities required. It is fair to say, some are in great need of upgrade and replacement, and I would hope we would see some of these needs being announced next week." Mr Bull said.
