MORRISON MUST EXPLAIN CUT TO VETERANS
AMANDA RISHWORTH MP
Scott Morrison and the Liberals must explain their $171.6 million cut to DVA and how this will impact our veterans’ and ex-service personnel.
 
This is a cut in plain sight by Scott Morrison and the Liberals need to come clean about what this means for veterans and which of their services will be cut.    
 
A $171.6 million cut will impact veterans and Scott Morrison and the Liberals must explain how.
 
Morrison is locking in the same Liberal cuts he delivered our veterans last year when he cut $40 million from allied health services in last year’s Budget, which we know will result in less services for our veterans.
 
After six years of cuts and chaos, and six weeks before an election, Morrison has delivered an election con with the more Liberals cuts.
 
Whilst Labor supports the other measures in the Budget for veterans, the Liberals need to explain their $171.6 million cut to the Department of Veterans’ Affairs.
 
To date, Labor has announced a number of policies which focus on increased support for our service personnel as they transition into civilian life. This includes Labor’s $121 million comprehensive Veterans’ Employment Policy, our commitment to signing a
Military Covenant and developing a Family Engagement and Support Strategy.
 
Bill Shorten and Labor will deliver a fair go for veterans, ex-service personnel and their families through tangible outcomes.
