Thank you Mister Speaker.
My Question is to the Minister for Community Services and Development.
Minister, emergency relief organisations like St Vincent de Paul, the Salvation Army, City Mission, Loaves and Fishers and many more are stretched beyond their limits. They have more and more people seeking help who are crumbling under the cost of living pressures. They tell me that their emergency food reserves are exhausted, blankets and clothing stocks are running low and workers and volunteers are at their wits end.
Minister, my question is simple.
What will you do to ensure that these organisations have enough food, blankets, personal hygiene products, towels, medical supplies and pet food to assist those Tasmanians who are doing it incredibly tough?
