Statement on the COVID-19 pandemic

The COVID-19 pandemic demands a full Ministerial Statement in the Victorian Parliament.

The seriousness of the impact of COVID-19 overseas and now on the Victorian community means it is imperative that the Health Minister Jenny Mikakos puts a formal detailed Ministerial Statement to the Parliament as the first item of business when it resumes on Tuesday.

Standing Order 5.14 provides for a Ministerial Statement to take precedence over Government Business given the nature of this serious emergency.

The Order provides for the Minister to make a 20 minute statement. This then provides an opportunity for the Minister to explain the actions she has taken since the Parliament last sat, given the increasing seriousness of the situation.

The Order provides for an immediate debate following the statement.
