Mr NORTHE — While I am speaking about the Hazelwood mine fire, I was also pleased recently to attend thankyou events to recognise the outstanding efforts of our emergency services, volunteers and community organisations during the initial response to the fire and subsequent recovery supports. In stark contrast, one cannot help but be disappointed in the Premier. We all remember his outspoken criticism of all and sundry during and after the Hazelwood mine fire when he was Leader of the Opposition, but where is the Premier now that, under his watch, local Environment Protection Authority air monitoring equipment has failed in recent weeks? When the local community is seeking answers and confidence from the government, the now Premier, whilst he was all talk in opposition, has been nowhere to be seen or heard on these issues. This is simply a disgrace.
