Veterans Affairs: A Closure Workaround

Eddie Orrell and Alfie MacLeod

Two local MLAs are defending their attempt to work around the pending closure of the Veterans Affairs office in Sydney.

They presented the proposal to the federal minister without consulting a veterans' group or the workers. The union and veterans say they shouldn't have done that.
