  • Thank you very much Kate and thank you all very much for such a warm welcome. To Peter Hood, President of the Australian Chamber, Kerry Weatherill, Deputy President and Tim Reed, Chief Executive of MYOB, ladies and gentlemen. There has never been a more exciting time to be at the Australian Chamber tonight, and that’s because, well some of you are visitors, but let me tell you there has never been a more exciting time to be Australian.

  • We have to stand up against and eliminate violence against women and children and men have to take the lead. That is why we were there this morning at the breakfast with General Ken Gillespie, standing up, committing ourselves to stop violence against women and children.

  • Thank you for the commitment of the men and women who work in the building and in the surrounds to this absolutely critical national cause.

  • Well thank you very much and it is great to be here with George – a writer who has informed and inspired us for so long.

  • Violence against women is one of the great shames of our nation. We need to break this cycle, and that starts with understanding where the problem begins.

  • Today I am announcing three changes in Commonwealth Departmental Secretaries.

  • When innocent people are dying at the hands of violent extremists, no matter where in the world this is happening, hard questions are asked of societies like our own -- hard questions for which there are no easy answers.
