Pollster and Melbourne lord mayoral candidate Gary Morgan has proposed the construction of an underground car park at the Queen Victoria Market. This would entail exhuming and relocating several hundred of the 6,000-plus bodies that are interred at the site. Morgan stresses that exhumation would occur only where "absolutely necessary", and he says the procedures used for exhuming and DNA-testing bodies from the battlefields of Fromelles could be used at the Queen Victoria Market site.
