  • The Turnbull Government is taking decisive action to reduce energy prices for Australian families and businesses. It is simply not good enough that some consumers cannot always afford to turn on their lights, heating and equipment. This must stop. Too many families are not on the best power deal. That is why today we took further action.

  • I am here with the Treasurer and the Minister for Energy to talk about the outcomes of the meeting we had with the energy retailers together with the Deputy Prime Minister, but before we move on to that, I want to restate how Australia welcomes the new and harsh sanctions imposed on North Korea by the Security Council, supported by China and Russia, as you know. The North Korean regime's conduct is as illegal as it is reckless, as provocative as it is dangerous. It threatens the peace and stability of the region, of the world and they have to come to their senses.
