Tim Bull wants "common sense" over Anzac Day services
After yesterday's announcement that Melbourne's Anzac Day march has been cancelled due to the current COVID-19 outbreak from hotel quarantine, Member for Gippsland East, Tim Bull, wants local services protected.
"After last year’s cancelled Remembrance Day services, the decision to cancel Melbourne’s Anzac Day march is disappointing," said Mr Bull, who is Victoria's Shadow Minister for Veterans Affairs.
"I am somewhat surprised that this decision has been made 10 weeks out from Anzac Day. I will seek more information on why this call had to be made so early.
"However, I hope common sense prevails and that the current circumstances in late April – not in mid-February – are the first consideration in any restrictions imposed on the day’s commemorative services."
