Steele-John: Statement regarding travel to Canberra for Parliament

Friday 20th March, 2020

After seeking advice from medical professionals, my colleagues and my family, I have made the decision to stay in Western Australia - I won't be travelling to Canberra for Parliament next week. 

We're all in this together and all of our lives have been disrupted. For at risk people, including disabled people, we're having to re-evaluate and adapt, balancing our usual routines with minimising the risk to ourselves and those we love. 

During this time, I'll be working remotely and I am committed to ensuring that we hold the government to account so that everyone in our community can access the support and information they need to get through this crisis.

In this time of uncertainty, we are here and we will continue to support everyone in our community. You can continue to reach my team and I by calling 08 6245 3310, emailing senator.steele-john@aph.gov.au or contaccting me on social media via my facebook, instagram or twitter.

I'm in regular contact with my Greens colleagues, some of whom will be travelling to Canberra next week, and we will all continue to work towards making sure the government understands that their response to this crisis must include adequate measures to support everyone in our community.
