Australian Government coat of arms

Prime Minister of Australia

The Hon Malcolm Turnbull MP


22 July 2016

  • The Turnbull Government is delivering on its election commitment to support South Australia’s steel sector and workers at Arrium. The Export Finance and Insurance Corporation will provide a loan under the National Interest Account of $49.2 million for new machinery at the Iron Knob and Iron Baron mines. This will enable Arrium’s OneWhyalla business to process iron ore to export quality and is expected to boost Arrium’s cash flow by more than $200 million over the next five years.

  • On the line for the first time since the election is Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull – good morning.

  • Welcome back, welcome back to Government. Welcome back to three years of serving the Australian people. We’ve all fought a long campaign. A very tough campaign in winter - eight weeks. There has been a lot written about all of us but this election was not about us. It’s about 24 million Australians - their future.

  • The Prime Minister joined me from our Parliament House studio in Canberra earlier. Prime Minister thank you very much for joining us.

  • As I said in the Party Room this morning, this is a term of Government when we deliver on our policies, on our programs, on the great investments that we set in train. This is a term of Government where we ensure that Australians see their Government serving them. It has been an election in which politicians have contended but the election is about all of the Australian people. What I am announcing today is the team, the Ministry that I will be recommending to his Excellency the Governor-General tomorrow.

  • We said farewell to HMAS Darwin in December and now the Darwin has returned. The joy among all the families here is, just listen - it is a great day, a great happy day and they have done great work keeping Australia secure and working with our allies in the battle against terrorism, against smuggling, against all of the criminal activities that support our enemies in the Middle East and around the world.

  • Thank you very much and thank you Commodore, Admiral, Tanya Plibersek - representing the Leader of the Opposition, Trent Zimmerman - representing the Minister for Defence, and the families of the ship’s company of HMAS Darwin.
