  • Prime Minister: Prime Minister Valls welcome to Canberra. We had a great discussion reflecting on the shared values and history of France and Australia. A hundred years ago the diggers of Australia and the Poilu of France were battling together on French and Belgium soil to defend the liberty of France. And we have - our Governor-General has just been in France as we remember the Centenary of those great battles, Fromelles and Pozières and enormous struggle. We have shared those values and stood together ever since and the proposed future submarine partnership will be another opportunity for France and Australia creating unprecedented opportunities to strengthen and expand, deepen our already strong relationship.

  • The Turnbull Government has committed to the most significant package of education quality reforms in a generation to drive excellence in Australia’s school students as part of a $73.6 billion student achievement plan. An additional $1.2 billion from 2018 to 2020 will be tied to a needs-based distribution of funding and reforms in our schools to help every parent have confidence that their child is receiving the teaching they require. The Turnbull Government is focused on achieving quality outcomes from our record levels of funding.

  • Prime Minister: I’m delighted to be here with the Education Minister, Simon Birmingham to talk about our schools policy that the Treasurer described in his interview this morning. What we are doing is making a commitment to the things that matter most to all of the parents of those kids that are playing soccer today and kicking around on football fields and cricket fields – enjoying themselves today, they are having a great time – but their future depends on great teachers and on having the skills that they need to be able to take advantage of the enormous opportunity of the 21st century economy.
