Daniel Andrews hides CFA report

Daniel Andrews has lost control of Victoria’s fire service dispute and continues to hide the CFA annual report from the public.

If you have nothing to fear, you have nothing to hide. If Daniel Andrews has nothing to fear in the CFA annual report then he should release it publicly before the November election.

This report joins the pile of over 100 crucial reports that Daniel Andrews is withholding from the public until after 24 November.

The list of reports include the VEOHRC report into the culture and bullying of the CFA and MFB, the report into Fire risks of Victoria’s electricity networks, the Department of Health and Human Services report, surgery waiting lists, adult parole board and The Office of Public Prosecutions – to name a few.

A Matthew Guy government would take back control and hold a Royal Commission into Victoria’s fire services. The Royal Commission will ensure we expose what the Andrews Labor Government is hiding on the CFA dispute.

Daniel Andrews and his Labor Government are continuing to cover up bullying in our fire services and only a Liberal Nationals Government will uncover the truth and protect those who protect us.

Quotes attributable to Brad Battin, Shadow Minister for Emergency Services:

 “The Liberal Nationals will take back control and protect our hard working CFA volunteers who protect us.

Daniel Andrews has lost control and is even now misleading Victorians, hiding the truth about his war with the CFA.

Daniel Andrews leaves the safety of Victorians at risk, as his war with the CFA has seen more volunteers leave. Only a Liberal National Government will has a plan to support volunteers and better protect our state.”
