Kim O’KEEFFE (Shepparton) (14:41): (38) My question is to the Minister for Government Services, and I ask: when will critical flood relief payments be made to businesses and community members who have applied and qualified for the flood relief funding but have not yet received their payments? I am getting a constant flow of inquiries into my office, including from a local pharmacist and small business owner in Mooroopna who had suffered significant financial loss during the pandemic and now again is suffering significant financial loss from the devastating floods. He is still waiting months later for his application to be progressed. This is causing stress and anxiety and affecting people’s mental health.
