Question on drug rehabilitation centre promise in Latrobe Valley

Ms BATH (Eastern Victoria) (14:06:17) — My question is for the Minister for Mental Health, who announced in April 2017 that in the 2017–18 budget $9.7 million of capital spending would go to acquiring land in Gippsland, Hume and Barwon to build new residential drug rehab facilities, noting that this was specifically for asset acquisition, not recurrent funding. Tragically the Latrobe Valley has one of the highest rates of fatal drug overdoses in regional Victoria, but intervention and rehabilitation can turn lives around. Constituents, frustrated that there has been no action, no outcome and no property purchased in Gippsland, are feeling duped. Once again the Andrews Labor government has released media releases without outcomes. Minister, you are dragging your feet, much to the dismay of my constituents. When will the government purchase land for a new residential drug rehabilitation facility in Gippsland and where will it be located?
