It was great to catch up with Laurie Lawrence in Canberra today and hear about the massive difference Kids Alive: Do The 5 has made in reducing childhood drownings in Australia, but of course, there's still more work to be done.

This summer, let's put an end to childhood drownings for good - find out more on Laurie's website: [ Kidsalive.com.au Link ]

Since 1907, over 630,000 people have been rescued by surf life savers around Australia.
This is a service many of us sometimes take for granted, so on the first day of summer it was great to acknowledge their tireless efforts and meet the next generation of life savers!

The government's failure to invest in capacity building infrastructure is a missed opportunity to put our people to work and is theft from future generations. Future generations will think us mad, and they'll be right.

Our nation will rue the day we did not use this period of ultra low interest rates to invest in critical economic infrastructure in the regions and in our cities.

Today in parliament I paid tribute to my uncle Charlie who passed away last week aged 94. A member of the 9th Battalion that fought the Battle of Milne Bay and a cane farmer all his life he is survived by his wife, Bev, and his stepson, Stephen, who cared for him so well.

Rest in peace Uncle Charlie. Lest We Forget.

Over the past month my office has received numerous calls from locals about the wait time for Medicare rebates with some people indicating they're waiting up to six weeks for their rebate to be processed.

Reports I've seen show the patient claims backlog has reportedly hit 130,000 and is the result of the...

A terrific morning in the park for the Boondall Neighbourhood Watch BBQ.
On Thursday in parliament, I spoke about the need for a progressive taxation system to deliver the revenue we need to drive investment in health and education. Progressive taxation is the underpinning of a prosperous economy and fair society.

We all know that tax evasion and aggressive tax minimisation is ripping apart the social contract in this country.

We know the Prime Minister is a...
