Melbourne lord mayoral candidate Gary Morgan has pledged to exhume upwards of 6,000 skeletons buried under the Queen Victoria Market carpark if he wins the upcoming election. Morgan said the skeletons would be DNA tested, and their descendants would be allowed to decide where they should be buried. Morgan, who was one of six candidates taking part in a forum at the Melbourne Press Club, said exhuming the skeletons would enable an above-ground car park to be moved underground instead, with a park to be put on the surface. Other campaign promises aired at the forum included a proposal by Labor candidate Jennifer Yang to ban alcohol at the Town Hall.
