Mr McGUIRE (Broadmeadows) (19:15:41): (792) My request is to the Attorney-General. The action I seek is for the Attorney-General to join me to visit the Family Drug Treatment Court in Broadmeadows. The Andrews Labor government will invest $8.1 million in the Family Drug Treatment Court in Broadmeadows to help parents struggling with addiction to get their lives back on track and to return to their families. The Family Drug Treatment Court will help up to 30 parents a year address drug and alcohol dependence and keep their families together, supporting some of our most vulnerable people. This investment will be part of a bigger strategy that I am also working on as the Parliamentary Secretary for Crime Prevention to help address the causes of crime. I would like to acknowledge and commend the Minister for Police and Emergency Services, who is at the table, and the record investment the Andrews Labor government has made in fighting crime and increasing public safety and security, and I look forward to working collaboratively to help deliver more results to cut the crime rate in Victoria in the future.
