State Government Calls for Compensation for PFAS Victims

The NSW Government has urged the Federal Government to do more to support victims of PFAS contamination, including those in Williamtown.

The Berejiklian Government submitted a response to an inquiry into the Commonwealth’s handling of the issue.

They’ve called for the Turnbull Government to clean-up the toxins and to consider buying back impacted properties.

The State Government also criticised a recent report which found no link between PFAS and poor health.

Member for Port Stephens, Kate Washington has welcomed their response but says it is a case of too little, too late.

“The Berejiklian Government should have been saying all this years ago.”

“They should have been listening to the community, they should have been giving them the respect they deserve and we may have seen the Turnbull Government do something to support these families before now, ” says Ms Washington.
