Recently the Turnbull Government announced our Quality Schools reform package.  This will deliver real needs-based funding for Australian schools for the first time – and substantially increase funding from the Commonwealth Government for Australian schools.

There are many fine schools in Bradfield. We have 29 government schools, 10 Catholic systemic schools and 18 independent schools.

Modern Labor a Shrunken Relic of its Former Self

The recent release of the 1992 cabinet papers is a reminder of the scale of economic reform during the Hawke and Keating years.

Government spending boosting infrastructure activity

Earlier this week, I attended the sod turning ceremony on the Northern Connector project in Adelaide – a $985 million project, of which $788 million is funded by the federal government, to build a 15.5 kilometre expressway. This project will create some 480 jobs per year, and stimulate economic activity in the northern suburbs of Adelaide. It is a good example of the way that government infrastructure spending is boosting our economy.

If you visit any Australian capital city airport on a weekend, it is amazing how busy it is. Australians regard flying off to another city for the weekend as quite routine. Yet thirty years ago leisure travel was much less frequent – mainly because air travel was much more expensive.

With technology transforming cars at an increasing rate, governments face some important questions about how to respond.

In the past few weeks we have heard some inaccurate claims about the result of the 2016 election.  Labor has been trying to give the impression that it nearly won, and some have argued that we face instability in the lower house similar to that of the 2010-2013 period.

Tragic events at Hornsby Mall

Yesterday's tragic events at Hornsby Mall are shocking and saddening.

It is particularly sad that innocent bystanders were injured.

How does Bill Shorten know that investing $500 million in the AdeLINK light rail project is a good use of taxpayers’ money?

It may not be immediately obvious from the job title “Minister for Major Projects”, but one task that falls to me is overseeing the federal government’s role in regulating the design of motor vehicles in Australia.

The Bureau of Infrastructure, Transport and Regional Economics looked at this question in a 2012 paper, which had some very interesting findings.
