LABOR SUPPORTS BUSHFIRE EFFORTS IN QLD AND NSW

Federal Labor expresses its deep concern for residents affected by serious

bushfires across much of Queensland and Northern New South Wales.

We have been in touch with Queensland Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk and

State and Federal Emergency Services Ministers to offer our support in this time of

need.

We commend the efforts of fire and emergency service personnel and the many

volunteers who have assisted to fight fires in these dangerous conditions.

We also commend the residents of bushfire affected regions for their cooperation

with bushfire authorities

We join with our state counterparts in encouraging all residents to follow the

directions of authorities.

We express our sincere sympathies to those who have lost their properties and will

do what we can to support recovery efforts.
