My question is to the Minister for Police and Emergency Services. It is about the terrible recent bushfires in my electorate of Northern Victoria Region. I ask the minister if she could indicate what information the government possesses about the actual ignition sources of each of the fires. To clarify what I mean by that question, what I am asking is if the minister could state how many separate bushfires began within Northern Victoria Region during the period from 1 December 2019 to the date of her answer; and in what percentage of these cases have the ignition sources respectively been identified as being (a) attributable purely to natural events, (b) human caused, ideally subdivided into accidental, suspicious or deliberate acts, and/or (c) due to any factor other than (a) or (b)?
