New Deputy Premier John Barilaro will visit Armidale next week after receiving an invitation from Northern Tableland MP Adam Marshall.
The Deputy Premier confirmed the visit yesterday in State Parliament during question time.
“I’m delighted the Deputy Premier has responded so quickly to my invitation and will visit our region next week,” Mr Marshall said.
“The Northern Tablelands will be one of the first electorates the Deputy Premier will visit since his election earlier this week.
Mr Marshall said he’d be arranging a busy itinerary for the visit, meeting with local councils and in Armidale with business representatives, the University of New England and local TAFE staff and management.
“I’ll also be taking the opportunity to lobby the Deputy Premier about some roads funding around Inverell ... and brief him on the progress of the Inverell Hospital redevelopment,” he said.
