Protecting the wellbeing and aspirations of Territorians is my biggest priority coming into this election and easing pressure on the cost of living is the key to this.
A Federal Labor Government will make childcare affordable, protect Medicare fiercely and invest in aged care to ensure all Territorians get the care they deserve.
Labor will put quality back into aged care for you and your loved ones by providing better food, more care time and 24/7 on-site nurses in residential care.
Labor will also lift the maximum childcare subsidy rate to 90 per cent to make it easier for families to get ahead.
I regularly drive thousands of kilometres across the Northern Territory listening to the concerns and aspirations of my constituents.
Territorians need secure, well-paid jobs. That’s why I will push to rebuild our proud manufacturing industry so we can make more things here in the Territory.
I will amplify the voice of all Territorians in our Federal Parliament and continue to push for investment in Territory schools, hospitals, housing, infrastructure, social services, justice, and jobs.
Labor’s pledge to create an independent National Anti-Corruption Commission
Territorians deserve a federal government that is serious about transparency and accountability.
That’s why an Albanese Labor Government will establish a powerful, transparent and independent National Anti-Corruption Commission.
Despite overwhelming public support, there is still no anti-corruption commission at the federal level.
The Morrison Government’s ever-increasing list of scandals and cover-ups has reinforced the urgent need for a powerful, transparent and independent National Anti-Corruption Commission.
After a year of neglect by the Coalition, Territorians deserve so much better from their federal government.
Labor will deliver a future where no one is held back or left behind.
