The Coalition Government’s plan to put the budget back on track is working. We’re providing strong economic management, investing in local infrastructure, creating local jobs, and delivering the essential services Australians rely on.

Our key achievements since coming to government include:

  • A stronger economy: Real GDP grew by 3.4 per cent through the year to the June quarter 2018, faster than any G7 economy and well above the OECD average. We have completed our 27th consecutive year of economic growth and the budget is now on track to return to balance.
  • Record jobs growth: Over one million new jobs were created within our first five years of government. Over 400,000 jobs were created in 2017 alone.
  • Small business tax cuts: We have delivered small and medium business tax cuts, benefitting over 3 million businesses that employ over half of working Australians. These tax cuts will help 15,722 local businesses in Bonner alone.
  • Income tax relief: We’re delivering responsible tax relief for low and middle income earners, including over 66,550 taxpayers in our electorate of Bonner, so more Australians can keep more of their hard-earned income.
  • Infrastructure spending: Our $75 billion infrastructure package will fund vital road and rail infrastructure projects that will reduce congestion, improve safety, and create jobs—this includes $1 billion to upgrade the M1 and $300 million for the Brisbane Metro.
  • Fair funding for schools: There will be an extra $24.5 billion in schools funding over a decade provided through the Gonski 2.0 needs-based funding model, including a $33.2 million increase in funding for government and independent schools in Bonner, and increased funding for Catholic schools in Bonner.
  • Increased funding for preschools/kindergartens: We’ve guaranteed over $440 million for states and territories in 2019 so four year olds can access quality early learning. We are ensuring that 2,281 children in Bonner can access 15 hours of quality early learning in the year before school.
  • Increased hospital funding: We’re providing record levels of funding for public hospitals, including over $29.5 billion for Queensland public hospitals under the new five-year National Health Agreement, which will provide millions of additional hospital services for patients.
  • More affordable child care: We are making child care more accessible and affordable for families that need it most. Over 7550 families in Bonner are better off under our new child care system.
