Greens want a united front on the fluffy debacle

Share Canberra's trusted news:


SHANE Rattenbury is calling on all Canberra Senators, Members of Parliament and MLAs to form a tri-partisan approach calling on the Federal Government to support an inquiry into the Mr Fluffy crisis.

“Canberrans deserve answers and justice after the Mr Fluffy crisis. They also deserve certainty that a disaster like this will never happen again,” Shane said.

“Given their significant historical involvement in the issue, a thorough and effective inquiry must involve both financial input from the Federal and NSW Governments, as well as access to Federal documents and records.

“I have written to Canberra Senators Katy Gallagher and Zed Seselja, MPs Andrew Leigh and Gai Brodtmann and MLAs Andrew Barr and Jeremy Hanson to advocate that we take a tri-partisan approach to call on the Federal Government to support the ACT to deliver justice to the residents and families affected, and get answers to ensure we never see a repeat of Mr Fluffy.

“I was pleased to hear back from Senator Gallgher and Dr Leigh, but am disappointed to have heard nothing from the Canberra Liberals or Senator Seselja.

“I urge all representatives to act on behalf of Canberrans who have been impacted by the Mr Fluffy crisis and, in particular, I call on Liberal representatives to appeal within their party to generate support for a full inquiry involving the Federal Government.

“I will continue to work with my federal Greens colleagues to progress this issue.

“The Mr Fluffy crisis has taken a substantial toll on the residents and families involved, and the Canberra community deserves answers and the closure that answers can deliver,” said Mr Rattenbury.
