It’s been a busy few weeks and I’m pleased to say that my Parliamentary colleagues and I have been busy working to deliver good government for Australia, in line with our values.
Here are some key achievements from the last fortnight:
I’ve also been busy making the case for a return of the Green Army to support our environment, for the UK and Australia to have a closer trade relationship, to legalise e-cigarettes, for local councils to stick to collecting rubbish instead of talking rubbish and defending Peter Dutton against the failed Labor/Green witch hunt.
I was honoured to have been elected as the Chair of the Senate Foreign Affairs, Defence and Trade Committee – an important role that I am looking forward to taking to with vim and vigour. Indeed, I have already worked to deliver a report in support of the Trans Pacific Partnership which will help to secure $15.6 billion in economic benefits for Australia which directly translates to more jobs and investment for Tasmania.
I am also honoured to have been elected as the new Chair of the Australia-Israel Parliamentary Friendship Group. Israel is the only free and democratic nation in the Middle East and I am looking forward to working to advance the very deep friendship between Australia and Israel.
As always, if I can ever be of assistance don’t hesitate to make contact.
