Speaking Outside Parliament On The Hepatitis A Outbreak

24 February 2015

18 Australians are now infected with the hepatitis A virus. Speaking outside the House of Reps on Monday morning I asked one simple question - why is the Government still not acting to protect people at risk? Later that day the head of the Agriculture Department, Paul Grimes, directly contradicted the Prime Minister's claims that 100 per cent of all produce products were being screened. This is further evidence of the Abbott Government's chaotic and dysfunctional handling of a serious matter.
