Well I’m here with some good news. We have announced $189 million of additional commonwealth funds to bring WA’s GST share effectively up to 50 per cent and that’s all going into hospitals.
The Turnbull and McGowan Governments have agreed to build historic, major infrastructure projects that will create thousands of jobs, stimulate economic growth and bust congestion, allowing commuters to get home more quickly and safely.
The Turnbull Government will top up Western Australia’s share of the GST by investing an additional $188.9 million in the state’s hospital infrastructure in the 2018-19 Budget.
100 years ago, just as today, the streets of Villers-Bretonneux are filled with Australians.
Today we have been commemorating the brave men and women who risked and lost their lives in the First World War so that we may live today in freedom and in peace.
In the quiet peace of dawn, we pause and remember this place, as it was one hundred years ago. Green fields and trees have returned to take the place of mud, and trenches and all the wreckage of war.
Australians are hardly militaristic - tomorrow, ANZAC Day, does not commemorate a military victory. The Gallipoli campaign was a tragic and costly failure. We honour instead a triumph of the human spirit; courage, solidarity, resilience and above all mateship.
Prime Minister Turnbull, it is a great pleasure and honor to welcome you here to the NATO headquarters.
We are both liberal democracies and you’ve emphasized the importance of maintaining the rules-based order, the rules of the road that ensure that might is not right. That is the foundation of our security and our prosperity.
Security and prosperity and local jobs, going hand in hand.
Prime Minister of Australia
The Hon Malcolm Turnbull MP
