Fiona's legacy to continue

Statement from Daniel Andrews MP:

Our great Labor family is still mourning the loss of Fiona Richardson, Australia's first Minister for the Prevention of Family Violence.

Fiona leaves big shoes to fill (despite her tendency to speak in parliament without wearing them).

Today, I decided who could best take on Fiona's important responsibilities in Cabinet and carry on her great legacy.

That person is Natalie Hutchins.

Families living with mice and mould

 

Some of the most vulnerable women in our community are living in poor, unsafe and unhealthy housing conditions and feel unable to speak out for fear of getting evicted from their rental homes.

As we celebrate Refugee Week and the positive contributions made by refugees to Australian society, it’s also very important to raise awareness of the issues affecting refugees.

Remember this face?
