Question Time - An Opportunity To Get Some Answers On The Hepatitis A Scare

24 February 2015

On Monday I rose during Question Time and fired the following question at Tony Abbott - when was any government department first advised that imported berries had been contaminated with hepatitis A, and how many Australians have potentially been exposed to contaminated frozen berries? The answer, unfortunately, was lacking. There is no leadership being taken, government officials are doing their best but decisive action from the Prime Minister and Agriculture Minister is overdue.
