Mr GEPP (Northern Victoria) (09:48): The weather was wild in Leitchville last week, but that did not dampen the spirits during a visit to the local CFA crew to share the good news with Captain Darren Jenkins and Second Lieutenant Jim Parsons that Leitchville CFA will be getting a new station. And at the very time that I was making this announcement, today’s Deputy Leader of the Opposition was holding his own press conference. He was pouring scorn on the government for not funding a new CFA station in Leitchville, so there you go. The locals drew a bit of mirth and merriment from that little slip from today’s Deputy Leader of the Opposition. But of course that reform was made possible through the government’s fire services reforms, and the new building will accommodate their new tanker and will include a meeting room, kitchen, office, accessible amenities and changing areas for both women and men.
