United Australia Party State Directors throw support behind Senator Burston

State Directors of the United Australia Party have thrown their support behind their Leader in the Senate, the Hon Brian Burston, following the disgraceful attack upon him and his wife at Parliament House.

Acting National Secretary of the UAP Suellen Wrightson said she applauded the decision by Senate President Scott Ryan to strip access to Parliament House from One Nation staffer James Ashby.

“This news comes as a great relief.  The revocation of One Nation staffer James Ashby’s pass preventing him from entering Parliament House will enable our Senate leader to conduct his Senate duties safely as all Australians must be provided a safe workplace,” Ms Wrightson said.
