Following the news Victoria would close its SA border, Member for Mildura Ali Cupper(pictured) is calling on the Victorian government to ensure a permit system is workable.
Ms Cupper said This decision by the Victorian Government will be hugely disappointing for people in the Mildura electorate who were looking forward to the South Australian border reopening on December 1.
Ms Cupper said further she’s hopeful the impacts of the closure will be relatively small for border communities in her electorate, including Murrayville.
Yesterday, Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews said a "hard border" will be in place from for two days, before a permit system is introduced on Sunday.
It’s understood SA based agricultural workers will be eligible for the Victorian permit, however details are not yet fully clear.
