Question - to Minister for Immigration and Border Protection

My question is to the Minister for Immigration and Border Protection. Will the minister update the House on the savings to the budget achieved as a result of the government's successful border-protection policies?

Statement - Kimberley and Port Hedland Schools of the Air

Two schools from Durack visited Parliament House this week to participate in the parliamentary education program.

There are five Schools of the Air in Western Austr... read more »

Statement - Domestic Violence; Port Hedland Womens Refuge

I wish to discuss an issue that is all too prevalent, not just in my electorate of Durack but, sadly, across the nation: domestic and family violence. In March this year I was given the honour of representing the Prime Minister at the UN International Women's Day celebration in Perth. There was much talk about the plight of women around the wor... read more »

Budget 2014-15 Consideration in Detail - The need to close the gap in Durack

Let us hope I can now lower the tone in the chamber. Thank you. Maybe I will improve it; maybe I will lower it, but let's hope I can get some attention.

Adjournment debate - Price highlights Wiluna challenges

I spent a very cold night on the edge of the desert last week when I met with various stakeholders and residents in one of Western Australia's most remote towns, Wiluna—and may I say I had the best sleep I had had in 18 months. Wiluna was once a thriving regional hub and is where my mother spent her childhood. Sadly, times have changed, and W... read more »

Last Friday I had the pleasure of representing the Deputy Prime Minister at the opening of the stage 2 flood mitigation works in Carnarvon.

With app... read more »

MPI - Budget 2014-15; rural and regional Australia

 I rise today to speak on this matter of public importance. Let me start by saying that it is a bit rich for those opposite to question this government's commitment to rural and regional Australia, when the opposition leader, in his budget-in-reply speech, made no mention of supporting people in the bush. Actually, he made no mention of suppor... read more »
