Jane Garrett's breast cancer fight reignites Victorian Parliament health fears Brunswick Labor MP Jane Garrett revealed on Thursday that she was the latest parliamentarian to be diagnosed with the disease, which in recent years has also affected government frontbencher Fiona Richardson, parliamentary secretary Judith Graley, former Brumby government minister Maxine Morand and the late Lynne Kosky.
Ms Garrett who was forced to quit as emergency services minister in June amid bitter ructions over the CFA announced on Facebook that she would take time off for ongoing treatment, but planned to return to work "as soon as possible" next year. The announcement immediately renewed fears of a cancer cluster at Spring Street similar to health concerns that emerged a few years ago and prompted parliament bosses to commission a review by the Victorian Cancer Council and a team of experts led by Monash University professor John McNeil. The review, which was handed to the Speaker and President last year, looked at the records of 1233 politicians, parliamentary staff and protective services officers who worked at parliament between 1982 (when state wide Cancer Registry records began) and 2013.

Nonetheless, MPs louis vuitton nail bracelet and other political insiders say they are disturbed by the prevalence of cancer among their colleagues, with one telling The Sunday louis vuitton bags monogram speedy 30 Age this week: "You can't help but wonder if there's a connection (to parliament)" and another describing it as "very concerning". Legislative Council president Bruce Atkinson said he believed the precinct was safe for MPs, staff and visitors, but added: "While this latest case is not necessarily a trigger for a full investigation at this time, it is something that we will discuss with the management group and we'll quite possibly reflect back on the report that was provided to us to see if there is any further action that we need to take, to be 100 per cent certain that there is not a danger to people's health." A spokesman for the government said: "The louis vuitton desk agenda Andrews Labor Government takes the health and safety of all workers seriously and we will work with the presiding officer to address any louis vuitton large zippered agenda further concerns.
