Speeches

Education Amendment

Mr RAMSEY (Grey—Government Whip) (12:16): This bill—the bill, not the amendment—should be greeted with nothing but acclaim in this parliament; it ticks all the boxes. Sadly, Labor members come in here bleating about non-existent cuts to non-existent funding. The funding that th... ... more

Fair Work

Mr RAMSEY (Grey—Government Whip) (10:58): This bill put forward by the Leader of the Opposition—the Fair Work Amendment (Protecting Take Home Pay) Bill 2017—is entirely disingenuous. He seems to not remember that he was responsible for setting up the Fair Work Commission, for s... ... more

Great Western Bridge 90sec
