FIGHTBACK! INFORMATION OFFICE INUNDATED WITH CALLS

Following recent publicity on Radio Station 2UE, the Fightback Information Office in Hornsby has been flooded with calls from Sydney radio listeners wanting information about the Coalition's Fightback! plan.

Liberal Candidate for Berowra and Shadow Minister for Immigration and Ethnic Affairs, Philip Ruddock MP has been pleased that the office has been so successful, becoming a focus of national attention, in meeting the demand for information on

Hewson's blueprint for Australia.

"Originally the office was set up for local residents to have the opportunity to get all their Fightback! questions answered, however, now with radio coverage on the Stan Zemanek program, we have witnessed a surge in the number of calls from people right across New South Wales. The phones have been ringing all day every day", Philip Ruddock said.

Calls have been received from residents in Nowra, Randwick, Lakemba, Forbes, Seaforth as well as many also coming from local residents in suburbs such as Dural, Hornsby, Hornsby Heights and Pennant Hills. Many Hornsby shoppers have also dropped in to ask questions and to pick up information which is readily available.

This information covers all aspects of the Fightback! plan, including families, pensioners, self funded retirees and small business.

The office is staffed by volunteers and is situated in Room 5, 2 Florence Street, Hornsby.

One of the main volunteers, Mr Fred Crump, has been working extremely hard to ensure that people have maximum access to information on Fightback.

"When the Fightback! Information Office was first mentioned on the Stan Zemanek program, calls were still being received at 10.30pm and again the following day", Mr Crump said.
