Ballarat MP Catherine King has called for a National Redress Scheme public hearing to be held in town.

At this stage hearings are being held in capital cities and Newcastle but not Ballarat.

The Shadow Minister for Infrastructure, Transport and Regional Development is calling for the change due to Ballarat survivors being a driving force behind the Royal Commission.
