Parliamentary inquiry into WA tent cities needed

Greens Homelessness spokesperson Alison Xamon MLC has welcomed the call from the City of Fremantle for an inquiry into last month’s tent city in Fremantle’s Pioneer Park.

”We should absolutely be looking into what caused the tent city in Pioneer Park,” Ms Xamon said. “Given the greater resources of WA Parliament and that public housing and homelessness services are the state’s responsibility, I am in complete support of an independent Parliamentary inquiry into the tent cities that have popped up across WA.”

We will never support Roe 8 and 9 highway extensions and the destruction of precious Beeliar Wetlands: Greens

Greens Member for North Metropolitan Hon Alison Xamon MLC and Greens candidate for South Metro Dr Brad Pettitt have reiterated the Greens strong opposition to the Roe 8 and 9 highway extensions, saying the Greens have no interest in supporting an infrastructure project which destroys the Beeliar Wetlands.

Ms Xamon said her view on the destructive and ill-planned Roe 8 extension had not changed in the many years since the Greens first opposed the proposed road.
