Labor's alternative facts

Jacquie Petrusma, Minister for Human Services

Labor have have yet again proven their party is unravelling, with further alternative facts today in Parliament.

Rebecca White accused me of not managing over 100 Priority 1 cases of child protection notifications in Burnie and Devonport.

Ms White might need to check her sources - there are in fact NO Priority 1 notifications in the North West, nor are there any Priority 1 notifications state-wide.

There are 34 Priority 2 cases (22 in the North West, 3 in the North, 9 in the South), and three Priority 3 cases (all in the North West) state-wide.

All these cases are being actively managed and triaged in accordance with regular practice and assessment frameworks.

Before Labor MPs further embarrass themselves, they need to get their facts straight.
