Local MP, Tim Whetstone said “It’s extremely unfortunate that the Labor Government has put the pump and the museum in the too-hard basket, adding he will continue to advocate for the future of the Humphrey Pump and will continue to pressure the Labor Government to help preserve the iconic piece of history for generations to come.”
