Support for emergency services workers
23 May 2018, Mr McCurdy (Ovens Valley): I rise to support the efforts of The Nationals and the Liberals to stamp out the assaulting of paramedics and police officers.
Our paramedics should be untouchable, and anyone who dares to assault them should be duly punished.
The Ovens Valley community has had enough of this government's all talk and no action.
I am disappointed that this Labor government chose to vote against real changes yesterday to genuinely support our emergency services workers.
The Premier for Victoria has walked all over the Country Fire Authority volunteers, and now he stands aside while others walk all over our emergency services officers.
This is not good enough. Do something, Dan!
