Member for Barwon Kevin Humphries today announced that rural workplaces across the Barwon Electorate can apply for a rebate of up to $500 to implement safety measures aimed at reducing quad bike tragedies and injuries on farms.
Mr Humphries said the rebate was announced at the NSW Farmers Conference in Sydney as part of a push to encourage and support land managers to adopt a range of harm prevention strategies to protect their workers, family members and themselves.
FUNDING AVAILABLE FOR LOCAL ARTS AND CULTURAL FACILITIES
Member for Barwon Kevin Humphries said local public schools will benefit from the NSW Liberals & Nationals Government’s record investment in school infrastructure announced in last month’s State Budget.
Mr Humphries welcomed the expenditure, which will improve the learning facilities for local students.
“The NSW Government will spend $554 million in 2016-17, an increase of 37 per cent on last year’s expenditure,” said Mr Humphries.
