Motor registry to stay: Provest

Richmond MP Justine Elliot

RICHMOND MP Justine Elliot has sparked speculation that Tweed Heads may lose its Motor Registry Office following an announcement in Parliament by the Hon Duncan Gay that some offices will amalgamate with NSW Maritime offices.

Tweed Nationals MP Geoff Provest has dismissed Mrs Elliot's claims as "stupid".

"Mrs Elliot has got it all wrong," Mr Provest said.

Mr Gay - in response to a question without notice from Upper House MP Walt Secord, who is responsible for North Coast issues - admitted that he was planning to close outlets.

Mr Provest, who announced last month an expansion of services from the Tweed Heads Motor Registry Office, said the Maritime Services Office operated just three days a week at present and it "made sense" to move it to the Motor Registry site.

"The truth of the matter is that we will be merging offices, not closing services," Mr Provest said.
