Member for Northern Victoria Region, Candy Broad has called on the Baillieu-Ryan Government to use next month’s State Budget to deliver on its election promises and to create and maintain jobs.
In Parliament yesterday, Ms Broad called on the State Government to do this in Northern Victoria, including in electorates represented by Members of the Liberal and Nationals Parties that are governing Victoria in coalition.
“These electorates should not be taken for granted or overlooked by the Government in the forthcoming Budget”, Ms Broad said.
Ms Broad said that in the Electorate of Seymour, represented by Ms Cindy McLeish, there is the promise of $20 million to upgrade the Kilmore and District Hospital, a promise which was not honoured in the Government's first Budget.
“I call on the Government to at least commence delivering on this promise to Kilmore and surrounding districts in the 2012-13 Budget”, Ms Broad said.
“As well as that, in the Electorate of Seymour there is the promised $2 million commitment to fund chemotherapy chairs at Seymour District Memorial Hospital”.
“Again there is no reference to this in the Government's first Budget”.
“I call on the Government to fund this commitment in the 2012-13 Budget”, Ms Broad said.
