MEDIA RELEASE

RESPONSE TO TROPICAL CYCLONE PAM

 

Labor has welcomed the Government’s announcement of a contribution towards relief efforts in Vanuatu following Tropical Cyclone Pam.

Now we are starting to see the extent of the devastation, it is clear more help is needed.  Indeed, the Prime Minister of Vanuatu has asked for further assistance.

We urge the Abbott Government to do more to help Vanuatu, immediately.  Labor believes serious consideration should be given to deploying our expert Australian Medical Assistance Teams (AUSMAT).

Vanuatu is our close neighbour and good friend.  We must do all we can in support.
