Speeches

Social Services Legislation Amendment (Omnibus Savings and Child Care Reform)

I would like to bring down the tone of this very important debate and perhaps remind the member for Lindsay that we are the government. It is very easy when you are in opposition to assume that everything we are doing is bad for the community. Indeed, it is not. We are in government and that is what we intend to do. Today I rise to speak on t... read more »

National Stronger Regions Fund

Here I am again at the start of another week, highlighting work by the federal government with respect to what it is doing in regional, remote and rural Australia. Like my colleague Nola Marino, I am a WA regional Liberal who gets the bush and represents regional Australia. I am very proud to do so. I am pleased to rise today to speak on the m... read more »

WA Liberals deliver for Pilbara

Stability, jobs and economic growth—apparently, not very sexy words but these are the things I campaigned on and helped me to be re-elected in July 2016.  By working hard, I am delivering in the Pilbara, with a new St John Ambulance Port Hedland building, the realignment of the Great Northern Highway and the North West Coastal Highway... read more »

North West roads

I rise today to speak on the member for Capricornia's private member's motion.  It highlights exactly why I decided to run to be a Liberal, regional member of parliament—to develop regional, rural and remote Australia.  Pardon the pun, but, as I said in this chamber earlier today, the Federal Government  is making signifi... read more »

Mental health

I am pleased to speak about my contribution to address one of the largest health issues in Durack: mental health.  Last week, I announced that the Mid West Mental Health Service will have a suicide prevention trial.  Mental health, especially suicide rates, across the country, particularly in regional and rural Australia, is a growi... read more »

Carnarvon

I am very pleased today to speak about the tropical town of Carnarvon, in my electorate of Durack.  As I have said in this chamber on many occasions, Carnarvon is home to beautiful weather and delicious fruit, not forgetting the vegetables, as well as being on the doorstep of some of Australia's best natural beauties, such as the Ningaloo R... read more »

Melissa Price Mid West Basketball Competition

The 2016-17 Melissa Price Mid West Basketball Competition tipped off last month in stellar fashion. Teams from right across the Mid West  from towns such as Mt Magnet, Morawa, Mullewa and Mingenew participated in this summer's maiden round. The alcohol and drug-free competition has grown by leaps and bounds from its first round last season... read more »

Turnbull Government funding schools

Before I begin my speech I wanted to ensure—just in case the member for Fremantle was not aware—that, indeed, there have been 16 new schools built in Western Australia since 2014. It is a well-known fact that Western Australian teachers are the highest paid in the land. So I think the Barnett government is doing a sterling job in terms ... read more »

NPFL and CMCFL

I am very pleased to speak about the glue which plays a vital role in keeping regional and rural communities together, and what I am referring to is sport. 2016 will be looked upon as the year sporting hoodoos ended right around the world. The Western Bulldogs won their first AFL premiership in 62 years, Peel won the WAFL premiership, Leicester... read more »

Income Tax Rates Amendment (Working Holiday Maker Reform) Bill 2016 (No. 2).

Today I have the privilege of talking about the Income Tax Rates Amendment (Working Holiday Maker Reform) Bill 2016 (No. 2). This is a very good and sensible piece of public policy that this government has worked on. It has worked through the issues and has landed on a great result for both Aussie workers and foreign backpackers. This governm... read more »

National Stronger Regions Fund

It is the start of another sitting week, the final one of 2016, and here we are today talking about yet another Turnbull government commitment, with a program which is improving the lives of people in regional, rural and remote Australia. The Turnbull government is committed to building better regions, and the National Stronger Regions Fund, or N... read more »

HMAS Sydney II 75th Commemoration Service

Message from the Prime Minister, The Hon Malcolm Turnbull MP  I apologise for not being able to be with you on what is such a significant day for many.  Seventy five years ago 645 men lost their lives serving on board the HMAS Sydney. It would be one of our country’s greatest naval tragedies, not just for the loss of life but fo... read more »

Travis Owen and friends

I rise to speak today on the exceptional courage displayed by four young boys from the town of Dongara in my electorate who saved the life of an elderly fisherman in rough seas off the coast at South Beach, Port Denison.  The boys were watching the surf one Friday afternoon when they noticed a fisherman several hundred metres offshore caugh... read more »

Social harm by welfare-fuelled alcohol, drug and gambling abuse

I am very pleased to speak on the member for Grey's private member's business. Social harm caused by welfare-fuelled alcohol, drug and gambling abuse is a key priority for this government, and that is the reason the government initiated and has started trials of the cashless debit card. I do want to underline the word 'trial' because indeed it is a... read more »

Upgrading Durack's road infrastructure

Recently I announced that the Turnbull government has committed to upgrading the Cape Leveque Road, which will unlock the tourism potential of the beautiful Dampier Peninsula in my electorate, as well as improve safety and accessibility all-year round for the communities along this road.  This project is being funded through the government'... read more »
