DEBORAH KNIGHT: Scott Morrison joins us now from Melbourne, good morning to you.

PRIME MINISTER: Good morning Deb.

KNIGHT: Now you’ve gone in hard over the past fortnight to try and discredit Labor on border protection. This Newspoll though shows things haven’t shifted. Why do you think your message isn’t cutting through?

DAVID KOCH: Prime Minister, good morning to you.


KOCH: Given this poll out today, are you disappointed with that, that you haven’t had a bounce in the polls? Because you made a big thing of the difference between your policy and also the Opposition’s in terms of Medivac and asylum seeker boats.

Australia will meet its international climate targets without wrecking the economy and driving power prices sky high.

The Morrison Government today announced a $3.5 billion Climate Solutions Package.

Prime Minister, the Hon Scott Morrison MP, said Australians recognise climate change and the importance of protecting the environment.

“We will meet our global commitments, and do what is right for our environment, without taking a wrecking ball to the economy.

So it is a landmark day for Tasmania, for Hobart, and for Australia and I'm very pleased to be here with the Premier and all of our other colleagues of local, state, and federal government to get this done.

Federal, state and local governments have come together on a landmark agreement to bust Hobart congestion and back the fast-growing tourism and science industries that are key to Hobart and Tasmania’s future.

Prime Minister Scott Morrison said the 10-year $1.43 billion Hobart City Deal would open the city up by tackling congestion bottlenecks, boosting tourism and making the airport a true international gateway, driving scientific investment and creating an extra 720 jobs.
