Extend Disaster Payments Now

Scott Morrison recently announced that NSW residents are able to access the federal government’s additional disaster payments.

The Prime Minister increased the rate of flood assistance to parts of Northern New South Wales and he extended it further for the rest of Northern New South Wales.

We now have a situation where just over the border, flood victims are receiving $3,000 per individual but here in Queensland, and especially in Moreton where 12 suburbs were flood affected, Queenslanders who have been just as badly affected are only receiving $1,000. 

Noone begrudges the extra assistance people in New South Wales are getting - they need it - but so do people here in Queensland, in our local suburbs and every other community that has been flooded  

I along with the Labor team, are fighting to fix this. Can you join us by adding your name and sending a clear message to Scott Morrison?
