Labor votes against public safety (18.10.2017)

Today, the Labor Party voted in the Legislative Council against measures to keep the community safe.

The Liberal Nationals Bill to amend the Children, Youth and Families Act 2005 aimed to strengthen our youth justice system and the Youth Parole Board.

These measures would have kept Victorians safer by requiring the Youth Parole Board to consider the obvious: is this youth criminal a risk to the safety of Victorians if freed?

Our justice system is broken and weak with far too many reports of criminals offending on parole and bail.

This Bill would have made community safety the paramount concern when considering youth parole applications and required the Youth Parole Board to report on the number of offences on parole each year.

The Liberal Nationals have had to step in where Daniel Andrews has failed to keep Victorians safe.

Our bail, sentencing and parole systems are all broken and only the Liberal Nationals under Matthew Guy have the plans to keep Victorians safe.

At the next elections Victorians have a choice between more weak sentencing and soft on crime from Daniel Andrews or a tough crackdown on crime by a Matthew Guy Government.
