Just Who Is Telling The Truth Over BRIT Job Cuts?

Just Who Is Telling The Truth Over BRIT Job Cuts?

 Member for Bendigo West, Maree Edwards today demanded that the National Party representative in Bendigo Damian Drum come out of hiding and tell the truth about just who is responsible for the cuts to the TAFE sector that have resulted in job losses and course closures at the Bendigo TAFE.

“The CEO of BRIT has said that the job cuts and course closures are a direct result of the $9 million that has been stripped from the Bendigo TAFE by the State government”.

“The State government ‘spokesperson’ says that somehow the State government is not responsible”.

“It is time that the Member for Northern Victoria, Damian Drum revealed just who is telling the truth. Is the State Government saying that the CEO of BRIT is not telling the truth?”

“Mr Drum should know the answer to this question because it is his National Party that are responsible for the TAFE portfolio and the National Party that have inflicted these savage cuts on the TAFE sector”.

“Mr Drum has been in hiding since these TAFE cuts were announced and that shows that he is running from the shameful cuts to the TAFE sector that will disadvantage thousands of rural and regional students.”

“Mr Drum and the National Party can run but they cannot hide from the fact that they are badly letting down regional and rural Victorian families”.
