Fed government lying about CFA deal: Vic

AAP logoAAP 22/08/2016

The Victorian government will deal with any federal law that impacts on the proposed CFA pay agreement "if and when" the proposed legislation passes parliament.

Deputy Premier James Merlino - who's also the state emergency services minister - wouldn't speculate on Monday about whether Fair Work Act amendments could affect the CFA deal, instead insisting the Turnbull government's intervention was simply prolonging the three-year negotiations.

"What we have seen today is that the political stunts continue," Mr Merlino told reporters in Melbourne.
