MEDIA STATEMENT: Appointment to ministry

Wednesday, 28 February 2018


“I thank the Prime Minister and the Deputy Prime Minister for the opportunity to serve in the Ministry.

“I look forward to working with the Deputy Prime Minister, Michael McCormack, within the Transport and Infrastructure portfolio.

 “Infrastructure and transport are critical areas for all Australians including regional Australians. Having worked as an engineer, a tradesperson, a farmer, a small business owner and having lived most of my life in regional Australia, I have a deep appreciation of just how important well planned infrastructure and connectivity is.

 “This portfolio is critical to the Government’s efforts to drive jobs, growth and local economies.

 “It is an honour to serve the people of Hinkler as their elected representative and the Deputy Prime Minister in a ministerial role within the Coalition Government.”
