These are extremely difficult and uncertain times for everyone. Life is changing, for every Australian.

The Government is focused on slowing the spread of coronavirus to save lives – and every Australian has a part to play.

If we want to slow the spread of the virus, everyone must implement appropriate social distancing.

The Prime Minister has been clear; Australians should stay at home where ever possible. Many thousands of people across the country have moved to work from home, and from 5pm Friday 28 March, my office will do the same. Myself and my staff will be working from our homes as much as is practicable and will continue to support the residents of Barker.

While face to face meetings with constituents are no longer possible, we are here to do all that we can to help in these difficult times.

I know this is a tough time and I am here to offer assistance to anyone who needs it.

I urge any constituent wanting assistance or support to please email me at

Together we can get through this unprecedented time.
