  • Well thank you Graham and Melissa and Mark Cotter, it’s great to be here at North Bondi.  It is a great point to note and to reflect on that not one life was lost on a patrolled beach between the red and yellow flags.

  • Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull and Tasmanian Premier Will Hodgman today announced up to $6.84 million in disaster funding to help restore the State’s world-renowned parks and reserves that were affected by storms and floods through June.

  • The import ban was put in place pending a decision to classify- reclassify the guns and there has not been agreement between the states and territories to date. When agreement is reached, then the import rules will be changed so that they conform with the classification

  • The Parliament has today passed important legislation giving the Australian Defence Force (ADF) greater power to target terrorists with lethal force. The Criminal Code Amendment (War Crimes) Bill 2016 aligns Australia’s domestic law with international humanitarian law and provides legal certainty for Defence personnel fighting terrorist groups in combat zones.
