Senators holding forum at Leichhardt Hotel tonight

ROCKHAMPTON locals will get face-to-face access to five senators at a community forum at the Leichhardt Hotel in the CBD tonight.

Capricornia MP Michelle Landry is hosting the senators Federal Minister for Aboriginal Affairs Nigel Scullion, Federal Assistant Health Minister Fiona Nash, Senator Bridget McKenzie and Senator John Williams for a two-day visit.

Rockhampton-based Senator Matt Canavan will also be at the forum.

"It's not every day you get five senators visiting at the one time, so it will be a good opportunity for local people from all walks of life to have access to the government," Ms Landry said.

"I encourage people who are interested in a wide range of subjects from small business issues to health, pensions and agriculture to register and come along to listen and ask their own questions."

During their visit, the senators will meet with the health sector professionals, including hospital CEOs, to talk about the federal budget, indigenous agencies, key agricultural sectors and business leaders.

The free event will be held from 7-9pm.

People must register at website eventbrite or call 49226604.
