Member for Lismore Thomas George has challenged comments made by the Labor Party candidate for the state seat of TWEED in relation to job cuts at Murwillumbah’s Fire Arms Registry.

Mr George said no way have there been 30 jobs shed from the organisation, as the Labor Party has alleged.

“Once again the Labor Party is adopting fear tactics, without seeking clarification of the facts,” Mr George said.

“The NSW Police Force has confirmed NO jobs have been lost at the Firearms Registry in Murwillumbah, contrary to Labor scare mongering.

“I move to reassure residents that community safety is and always will be priority for the Berejiklian Barilaro Government.

“Moving forward I will work with Minister for Police Troy Grant to make sure there will be more permanent positions as a result of any structural changes which may occur in the future.

“Before the Labor Party makes public comments, it would do Members like Walt Secord well to leave the shadows of Sydney’s skyscrapers and do some real research first,” Mr George said.
