Hansard 2007-06-06 South-West Helicopter

Title: APPROPRIATION (2007/2008) BILL and BUDGET PAPERS 2007-08
Activity: Second Reading

………………….Although I have raised this matter in the past, Western Victoria Region remains the only region in the state to lack an emergency helicopter service.
I thank the Premier, Mr Bracks, and the Minister for Police and Emergency Services in the other place, Mr Cameron, for their correspondence on this matter, but I urge the government to reconsider its position. Early treatment following a serious injury is vital. Western Victoria
Region needs an emergency helicopter service. I ask the government to be a leader in this matter and address the issue as a matter of priority. ……………….
