Local Member of Federal Parliament Madeleine King is inviting members of the community to attend a defence issues forum at the Rockingham Navy Club on Wednesday 7 December.

Ms King will be joined by the Hon Amanda Rishworth MP, Shadow Minister for Veterans’ Affairs; Shadow Minister for Defence Personnel, and Gai Brodtmann MP, Shadow Assistant Minister for Cyber Security and Defence, at the public event.

“This forum will enable past and present defence members and their families to raise defence-related concerns with two of Labor’s Shadow Ministers with Defence responsibilities,” Ms King said.

“With the Government maintaining a code of silence following the recent report into legacy firefighting foam contamination on Garden Island, this is an opportunity to raise concerns about this issue or any other concern.

“Our defence members and their families are an important part of the local community and it is essential they are given the opportunity to voice their views on matters of importance to them.”

Ms King said the forum would be open to all members of the public who had any defence-related concern.  

Attendees are asked to RSVP by Tuesday 6 December by phoning 9527 9377 or emailing their name and contact details to [email protected].
