Members Statement - Births, Deaths and Marriages



Wednesday, 31 May 2023.

Mr NEWBURY (Brighton) (9:51):

For too long the Labor Government has failed to provide an acceptable births, deaths and marriages service.

Victorians often report the service and for years have reported the service being closed and with no response from the call centre at all.

As my constituent Jenny recently said, ‘I made back-to-back phone calls with assurances of call backs. None have been returned.’

The system is clearly broken.

Labor needs to fix this important service to the community, and they have not after years of complaints.
