NSW floods: Anthony Albanese to visit flood-affected areas of NSW later this week

Prime Minister Anthony Albanese will visit flood-affected areas of NSW later this week as the Federal Government announces financial aid for those impacted, after the crisis was declared a natural disaster.

Mr Albanese is expected to tour the flood-ravaged State with NSW Premier Dominic Perrottet as soon as Thursday after returning home from high-level talks in Europe on Tuesday evening.

“He will be on the ground here later in the week,” Acting Prime Minister Richard Marles told the Today Show on Tuesday, while speaking from flood-affected Richmond in north-west Sydney.

“Obviously this hadn’t happened before he left, and, you know, the Prime Minister has been in a war zone, and an area which is of enormous importance to Australia.”
