Introduction of the Clean Energy Legislation (Carbon Tax Repeal) Bill
Today I introduced the Clean Energy Legislation (Carbon Tax Repeal) Bill 2013.
The Australian people have already voted upon this Bill.
Now, the Parliament gets its chance.
This is our bill to reduce your bills – to reduce the bills of the people of Australia.
Visit to Afghanistan
The Prime Minister along with the Chief of the Defence Force, the Defence Minister and the Leader of the Opposition, has visited Australian military and civilian personnel in Afghanistan to mark the approaching end of Australia’s mission in Uruzgan Province.
The ceremony at the Multi-National Base – Tarin Kot marked the closure of the Provincial Reconstruction Team, which directed Australia’s civilian-led development efforts in Uruzgan
Visit to Indonesia
The Prime Minister on his first official overseas visit following the election has re-stated his commitment that Australia’s foreign policy will have a Jakarta focus and not a Geneva focus.
As he commenced his trip to Indonesia, the Prime Minister said “while Indonesia may not yet be our most important economic or security relationship, it is in many respects our most important relationship.”
Australia's 28th Prime Minister
On 18 September 2013, the Hon Tony Abbott MP was sworn in by the Governor-General at Government House.
First Abbott Ministry
On 18 September 2013, the new Ministry was sworn in at Government House.
The new Australian Government will be a government that keeps its commitments: The Government will scrap the carbon tax, end the waste, stop the boats, get the budget under control, build the roads of the 21st century and deliver the strong and dynamic economy that our country needs.
The work of the new Coalition Government is to make the lives of Australians better and to make Australia stronger.
