Kealy: Ice rehab beds

Ice rehab beds

Daniel Andrews admits Victoria is facing ‘rising drug crime’, but has delivered little to keep Victorians safe.

Today, Labor announced 30 new rehabilitation beds for Victoria in the next 12 months.

Daniel Andrews claims they’re not wasting any time, but what he failed to say is Labor had added zero public residential rehab beds in Victoria after more than two years in Government.

Daniel Andrews wouldn’t now be playing catch-up if Labor had adopted the Liberal Nationals’ plan to add more than 200 residential rehab beds in Victoria, which was committed before the 2014 election.

The ice epidemic is out of control, fuelling violence in our communities and in the home. A Liberal-Nationals government would introduce tough new sentencing and bail reforms to make Victoria safe again.
