Andrews government gas policy ‘ill informed’ with ‘very bad outcomes’: Fitzgibbon

Labor MP Joel Fitzgibbon says Premier Daniel Andrews’ gas policy is "ill informed" and will have some very bad outcomes.

"They’re going to deny Victorians gas and they are by the way both the highest per capita users and the highest absolute users in the country of gas; their cooktops, their ovens, their heaters, their fireplaces and of course their manufacturing sector which is very significant," he said.

"So this will hurt; but this will hurt consumers and business alike and in the long run it will lead to higher energy prices and loss of jobs."
