Speeches

Indigenous Housing

The 18 months since the election of the Rudd government and its commitment through the apology to Aboriginal Australia could be summed up in one old adage: talk is cheap. When we gathered here last year in a show of bipartisanship for the apology, and the Prime Minister pledged to ‘close the gap’, I... ... more

Australian Technical Colleges
