in In Parliament

I am grateful to the three mayors within the community, the community generally and members of the Health Advisory Council, who have all worked collaboratively with me to make the case for these licences.

Mobile Phone Black Spot Program
in In Parliament

Mr Deputy Speaker Llew O’Brien, I, like you, spend a lot of time listening to constituents and, overwhelmingly, the same topics come up again and again and again.

Australian Banking System
in In Parliament

There are brave individuals in the other place; Senator Williams, in particular, is the first person I saw call on this. At the time I thought we had a well-regulated banking sector, which had coasted us through the global financial crisis, and I was using that as evidence of how resilient the Australian banking system … Continue reading Australian Banking System

Taxation Whistleblowers
in In Parliament
