HON JANE PRENTICE MP - ASSISTANT MINISTER FOR SOCIAL SERVICES AND DISABILITY SERVICES:

I am very excited today because this is the first visit I’ve had from the Prime Minister to my electorate and of course where else would I choose to bring the Prime Minister but Glenleighden School. This is one of the most special facilities we have in Ryan and I am delighted that Principal Debra Creed could be here today to show the Prime Minister the wonderful work you do.

Debra – would you like to say a few words about Glenleighden?

MICHELLE LANDRY MP:

It’s fantastic to be here, Prime Minister, I think you’ve been here about four times in the last 18 months?

PRIME MINISTER:

Yes, always good to be back.

MICHELLE LANDRY MP:

It’s a pleasure to have you here and to be able to tell you about the things that are happening in Central Queensland, and as I keep saying, we are the powerhouse of the nation here so it is great to have the Prime Minister here. Thank you.

PRIME MINISTER:

MEECHAM PHILPOTT:

Special guest this morning – the Prime Minister of Australia. There is a lot to talk about especially in our region. Prime Minister, welcome along.

PRIME MINISTER:

Yeah, great to be with you.

MEECHAM PHILPOTT:

Thank you very much. Look, the first thing I wanted to get into is there is oodles in the papers today and it is all about the idea of getting more training, more money and more opportunities for single parents. Where’s that all come from?

As you know, we have a determined commitment to regional Australia. We know that Australia does not end at the outskirts of the capital cities, just like Queensland doesn’t end at the outskirts of the south-east corner.

Now this week we are getting on with the job of delivering on our budget commitments. We delivered a budget that was fair.
