  • The Turnbull Government will invest $100 million in Navy related industrial infrastructure and sustainment in Western Australia between 2017 and 2020. The investment in shipbuilding production lines and facilities, including wharves, jetties and cranes, will occur on both Defence Estate, particularly HMAS Stirling (Fleet Base West), and at the Henderson industrial precinct.

  • Steve Mills: Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull joining us on the radio. Good morning to you, sir. Prime Minister: Good morning, great to be with you.

  • Geoff Hutchison: Prime Minister welcome to WA, why haven’t you been to see us in the last six months? Prime Minister: Oh lots of work to do, a very busy Parliament getting a lot of stuff through. As you know, in the last six months, we’ve got more contentious legislation through the Senate than we had done in the previous three years, and some of that has been vitally important for Western Australia, particularly the restoration of the rule of law to the construction sector which is so important here in this state.
