Members Statement – Former Warrnambool Fire Station.

I ask: what is the Minister for Police and Emergency Services thinking by selling off government land on a corner block of a school that is landlocked and in the centre of Warrnambool? Blind Freddy can see that the Jamieson Street school is the obvious recipient for this publicly owned land. Surely the minister should have talked to his colleague the Minister for Education and said, ‘I’d better give this to your department’. Can these guys not work between their silos? The school is growing. Warrnambool is growing. The land which the old fire station was on is now for sale instead of taking the obvious action of letting the school have the missing corner of the block they are on. This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. I beg the government to use common sense. This would never happen in Richmond or anywhere in Melbourne.
