Volunteer Coast Guard funding

Eligibility - Queensland residents

Principal Petitioner:

Philip Feldman
21 Drummer Street
TIN CAN BAY QLD 4580

Total Signatures - 201

Sponsoring Member: David Gibson MP

Posting Date: 7/10/2014

Closing Date: 24/11/2014

Tabled Date: 25/11/2014

Responded By: Hon Jack Dempsey MP on 12/12/2014

TO: The Honourable the Speaker and Members of the Legislative Assembly of Queensland

Queensland residents draws to the attention of the House the great work that volunteers associated with Queensland's Volunteer Coast Guard units do every day in providing marine rescue services along the coast of Queensland, often in dangerous conditions. And that there has been no increase in Government funding for the past fifteen years towards this vital emergency service despite a significant increase in the work that they undertake.

 

Your petitioners, therefore, request the House to engage with the Queensland's Australian Volunteer Coast Guard to formulate a sustainable funding model that reflects the valuable work undertaken by volunteers of this organisation.
