Labor Under Fire Over Child Drowning Report

A local MP is slamming Labor over their refusal to fund swimming lessons for kids. Burnett MP Stephen Bennett says a damning report tabled in Queensland Parliament this month revealed that child drowning's more than doubled in a year. It found 19 children died from downing in 2016 and 17, which is the equal highest number since 2004. Mr Bennett says time for talk is over – this is a life and death matter.
