Federal member for Page Kevin Hogan said he was glad the issue of the Liberal Party leadership had been resolved today.
“My focus has always been, and will always be, on helping my constituents and delivering for our community,” he said.
Mr Hogan highlighted the four pillars adopted at last week’s National Party meeting in Wodonga:
• Regional youth policy, including access to tertiary education, jobs and safer communities;
• Re-establish a fund to improve telecommunications and NBN services in regional centres and rural Australia;
• Implementation of measures to protect primary producers and small business from unfair practises of the major supermarket chains; and
• Ensuring strong and tangible outcomes and funding for the Northern Australia and Agriculture White Papers, and the Dams Taskforce;
Mr Hogan said, along with his National Party colleagues, he will also continue working on the delivery of key policy areas for regional families, businesses and communities, including:
• Continued focus on delivering improved health and education services for regional Australia.
• Delivering the Government’s $50 billion Infrastructure Package, including the Melbourne to Brisbane Inland Rail project.
• Getting Indigenous children to school, adults into work and ensuring Indigenous communities are safe.
