Swearing in of the second Turnbull Ministry

19 JULY 2016

Today I was honoured and humbled to be sworn-in again as Cabinet Secretary along with my other Ministerial colleagues. As the Prime Minister made clear when announcing the new ministry, we are committed to three years of strong, stable economic leadership so we can provide both the economic security and the national security that Australians expect and deserve.

This new ministry will deliver the economic plan that was put to the Australian people at the election. I am pleased to be commencing work on our legislative priorities for the 45th Parliament including the Australian Building and Construction Commission and Registered Organisations legislation, the amendment of the Fair Work Act to protect the independence of the Country Fire Authority volunteers and our Budget legislation.
