Legislative Assembly 7 October 2021
Mr MORRIS (Mornington): (6049) My question is to the Minister for Industry Support and Recovery.
Minister, I recently received an email from a constituent, who wrote:
As a business owner in Mornington of Remedial Massage and Myotherapy we have been forced to fully close during lockdowns. I have received the round two and extension grants however we are not part of a category that receives the extra $5000 continuity fund which we are in desperate need for.
When looking at the list I am completely confused as to why we are not on this list?
Our association has been advocating on our behalf to be allowed to offer our service like all other Allied Health to allow for those in real chronic pain to attend even if this is still rest practice.
Unfortunately, we keep getting told NO …
Minister, why is support provided to allied health providers, hospitality providers et cetera but not to a business like that operated by my constituent?
