STATE GOVERNMENT CALLS FOR COMPENSATION FOR RED ZONE RESIDENTS

The State government has taken aim at its Federal counterparts over the handling of the Williamtown RAAF base contamination scandal.

The Federal government continues to dismiss any cancer links to the PFAS chemicals and is denying pleas for land buy-backs.
