Questions without Notice
Minister, it's the firefighters who are speaking up right now, because it's their lives on the line. Indeed, Lee Johnson, who was in charge of Queensland's fire service, has said that the weather conditions they're now facing are unheard of. He said: 'You can’t actually fight it. The heat generated means you can’t put people or equipment in front of these fires.' Minister, given that firefighters are speaking up right now, why did your government disband the Secretaries Group on Climate Risk, who were preparing for catastrophes just like this one?
