Simon Crean pledges flood support
THE federal minister for Regional Development, Simon Crean, has pledged his support for residents living in flood ravaged parts of the Lockyer Valley.
The minister toured the worst of the Lockyer Valley’s “disaster zone” and said he would do “all he can” to help affected communities.
“The federal government is committed to helping communities get back on their feet,” Mr Crean said.
“In the first instance this means emergency assistance, but beyond that there is longer-term need for rebuilding.”
