Dear <<First Name>>
This week I have been in Canberra for the first of a two week Parliamentary sitting.
The return of Parliament has provided an opportunity to hold the Morrison Government account on a number of key issues, most notably their failures on aged care.
Last week, the Minister for Aged Care, Richard Colbeck, could not even recall how many people had died of COVID-19 in Victorian nursing homes. On Wednesday, Richard Colbeck walked away from questioning in the Senate.
Scott Morrison has been forced to sideline Richard Colbeck and hand some of his responsibilities to the Health Minster, Greg Hunt. However, this does not go far enough. The Government must make changes and support age care residents and workers to make a real difference.
Keep safe and kind regards
