'Bring Our People Home'

A Bendigo MP has urged Canberra to bring Bendigo locals stuck overseas, home.

In a joint statement with the shadow minister for Foreign Affairs Penny Wong, Lisa Chesters says the PM should bring people home.

Chesters says a number of affected people and family members have contacted her Bendigo office seeking help in the wake of the coronavirus.

She's described a government statement on the issue as appalling and vague.
