Members Statement – BRUCE MANINTVELD

MELINA BATH (Eastern Victoria) (09:57): I am sure this house shares in our grief for the loss of Darlimurla farmer Bruce Manintveld, a 50-year-old farmer who was out actually protecting his herd when this terrible tragedy of a storm came through. Speaking with farmers in the area post that devastating incident, they are really feeling the loss of this very respected person. So can we all collectively join in passing on our condolences to his wife Fiona and his wider family.
