Labor says it will spend an extra $21 million to support wounded Defence personnel if re-elected.

The money would go towards programs for specialist rehabilitation, housing support, and efforts to minimise the financial disadvantage suffered by wounded personnel.

The measures are part of Labor’s Defence policy, which also allocates $10 million to increase the number of reservists who are able to respond to humanitarian disasters like the Victorian bushfires.
