Federal funding for clean up welcomed


 
Labor welcomes the Federal Government's announcement that it will provide funding for the clean up of bushfire affected properties. 
 
Labor called for this earlier this week and we are glad the Government has listened.   
 
Today’s announcement covers properties in Victoria. The same commitment should be made to fund the clean up of properties in other states destroyed by the fires. 
 
This funding will make a real difference in the rebuilding of properties that have been damaged. It will mean homeowners and businesses will be able to spend money on rebuilding their homes and businesses instead of clearing up the damage. 
 
As the recovery continues, affected communities will need long term commitments from the Federal Government to rebuild.
 
Labor will continue to provide positive policy initiatives which help affected communities to get back on their feet.
