Standing up for Canberra

What's the "solution" for Williamtown, Assistant Minister?

Labor is deeply concerned by this weekend's Newcastle Herald reports of a possible "cancer cluster" on Cabbage Tree Road and calls on the Turnbull Government to release its "solution" for Williamtown and incorporate a review of any cancer patterns into current studies.

This weekend's reports only further add to the considerable anxiety, distress and uncertainty in the Williamtown community caused by nearly two years of Turnbull Government inaction.

The Assistant Minister to the Prime Minister has publicly stated he is working on a "solution" for the Williamtown community affected by the use of PFAS.

What "solution" is he proposing?

When will the "solution" be released?

Has the "solution" been developed in consultation with the Williamtown community?

And will the "solution" include a review of possible "cancer clusters"?

On Monday, Labor will contact the Assistant Minister to the Prime Minister's office to seek an urgent briefing on the Turnbull Government's "solution" for Williamtown and a response to the "cancer cluster" reports.
