Michael Munro: Prime Minister, the elephant in the room. Last night Malcolm Turnbull’s response, how do you think he went?
Prime Minister: Thanks you for coming today. Yesterday a lone, violent, extremist Islamic terrorist, Hassan Khalif Shire Ali, sought to instil fear in our nation.
Silence. At last, silence. A silence from that day to this that beckons a prayer for a dawn of peace, and a lasting peace.
GEORGE CHRISTENSEN, MEMBER FOR DAWSON: Well it’s great to have PM here in Mackay and I’ve also got our soon to be Senator, Suzie McDonald who will be based out of North Queensland as well.
Today I met with the Member for Kennedy in Townsville and reached an agreement for his ongoing support of the Government. This agreement is set out in the attached correspondence.
The agreement will support the continued stability of the Government, and us getting on with the job. It will protect against political disruption by the Opposition. I thank the Member for Kennedy for the way he has engaged in this process, and look forward to working closely with him in the months ahead.
It is great to be here at Lavarack Barracks.
Many Australian Prime Ministers have visited these Barracks and rightly so.
Well last night there was a lot of topics. There was obviously a lot of issues focused on the Defence Force community and the veteran’s community and of course I think… I mean, I’ll be over at Lavarack today. But on top of that water, a huge issue, electricity prices were also a big issue.
Australia will step up in the Pacific and take our engagement with the region to a new level.
Prime Minister: Well it’s great to be rolling in here to Rocky and we’ll be down in Gladstone later today as well so it’s great to be here in Central Queensland.
Prime Minister of Australia
The Hon Scott Morrison MP
