Price hits back at Labor’s false NBN claims

This week's attack by the member for Perth, Alannah MacTiernan, on the Abbott government's rollout of the NBN was nothing more than an attempt by the Labor Party to use the regions for their own political gain.

Matter of Public Importance - Manufacturing Sector

I am pleased to speak on this matter of public importance so that I can explain to the members opposite just how six years of Labor has hindered our economy.
