Response to union stunt

Jacquie Petrusma, Minister for Human Services


It is predictable that only three days before the election the unions, who are a 100 per cent owned subsidiary of the Labor Party, are making false claims.

The fact is, there are 40 more staff now than there were in December 2013.

Since coming to Government, we have invested an additional $51 million into child protection.

In addition, a re-elected majority Hodgman Liberal Government will invest an additional $16.7 million into Child Safety and Youth Justice Services.
