MICHAEL LAMB AND THE LIBERALS SHORT CHANGE FRANKSTON

Matthew Guy has today confirmed they will cut services, privatise assets, sack workers and stop building the infrastructure Frankston needs.

They have revealed a massive $39 billion budget black hole and secret plans to cut services and sack workers on the eve of the state election.

Victorians know the legacy of the Liberals is to cut and close – which Matthew Guy has today confirmed he will not fund the Frankston Hospital redevelopment – despite committing to funding it in full.

Only Labor will deliver the $562 million project to transform Frankston Hospital with 120 new hospital beds, two new operating theatres and an additional 13 new emergency department beds as part of the 11-storey redevelopment.

We promised to expand Frankston Hospital’s emergency department and we have, with 12 new short stay emergency beds now open and work underway on a new crisis hub for emergency mental health care that was funded in this year’s Budget.

The former Liberal-National Government cut a billion dollars from health when they were last in office and they will do it again if they get the chance.

Labor will keep standing up against Liberal cuts and closures and continue our record as a government for hardworking families, not corporations.

Only Labor has a fully-costed, fully-funded plan that delivers for all Victorians.

“The proof is now on paper – Matthew Guy will sack workers and cut services that Victorians rely on to pay for his promises.”

“Only Labor has a fully-costed, fully-funded plan that delivers for all Victorians.”

“We all know the legacy of the Liberals is one of cuts and closures.”

“We’ve built a brand new Frankston Station, delivered a record investment in our schools and only Labor will transform Frankston hospital.”
