Domestic Violence Funding Question Without Notice

GRIMLEY (Western Victoria) (17:40:17): My question is to the Minister for Health representing the Minister for Prevention of Family Violence. The protection of vulnerable persons continues to be a core value of Derryn Hinch’s Justice Party, and this is reflected in our policy for domestic violence reform. On average eight women present to hospital every day because of domestic violence. Last week the federal government announced the next round of funding for its domestic violence action plan, providing $328 million until 2022. My question to the minister is: with this funding, what will be the steps taken by the Andrews government to ensure greater safety for women and families?

Supplementary Question:

GRIMLEY (Western Victoria) (17:43:28): Is the minister able to provide any insight into whether Victorians can expect the federal government’s additional funding for the prevention of domestic violence to be matched by the state government in next month’s budget?
