Visit to Jayco with Brett Whiteley MP

It was great to spend some time at the Jayco manufacturing facility in Dandenong today with the company chairman Gerry Ryan OAM, the Federal Member for Lyons, Brett Whiteley,  and representatives from the caravan and recreational vehicle industry. Jayco is an Australian success story, established in 1975 and now employing over 1,000 people and building more than 10,000 vehicles a year. It is part of a dynamic growing recreational vehicle industry in Australia, with most of the manufacturing of camper trailers, caravans and RVs occurring here in Victoria. More Australians are taking to the open road in high quality Australian-made vehicles, supporting local manufacturers and providing a boost to regional economies as they explore the great wide open.


Last night I joined the Q&A panel to discuss a range of topics including citizenship, crime prevention, gay marriage and tax reform. We had an energetic debate on these and many other issues that are important not just to people in the audience but to all Australians in an open and constructive way.  I am pictured with fellow panellists Miriam Lyons, Co-author of Governomics; Jack Charles, Indigenous elder, actor and activist; Judith Sloan, Businesswoman, Academic and Columnist and Anthony Albanese, Shadow Infrastructure Minister. 

Opening of Sprinnt Camberwell

I was delighted to visit Sprinnt today, a new indoor cycling studio in Camberwell. Under the expert guidance of small business owners Yossi and Ilana Hayoon, I took a spin class to experience first hand the facilities that are available from this new fitness studio. Maintaining a fit and healthy lifestyle is a great way to get the most out of life - and cycling is just one of the ways that this can be achieved.

OSCA Annual Dinner

On Friday 29 May I capped off a busy parliamentary week by attending the annual Old Scotch Collegians Association (OSCA) dinner at Leonda in Hawthorn.  This year's dinner celebrated Scotch College's centenary of service to nation and school and the special guest speaker was Prime Minister, Tony Abbott.  I am pictured at the dinner with Kyle Wightman, the Prime Minister and OSCA President, Jonathan Buckley.

Speech to the 2015 Annual Stockbrokers Conference

On 29 May, I delivered a speech to the 2015 Annual Stockbrokers Conference in Sydney. The Conference, which included around 350 delegates, provided a great opportunity to highlight the importance of Australia’s financial sector, particularly given that it contributes $130 billion to our economy and employs more than 410,000 Australians. It also gave me an opportunity to discuss the Government’s priorities for the sector, including ensuring that it is competitive in an increasingly globalised market, improving the standards of Australian financial advisers, and using the Financial System Inquiry to lay out a roadmap for where we want the financial system to be over the next decade. 

Launch of FSC Native Title Services Standard

On 28 May, I launched the Financial Services Council Native Title Services Standard. The Standard makes an important contribution to the provision of financial services to the Indigenous community by: helping to build respectful relationships between trustee service providers and the Indigenous community; building capacity, particularly through increasing financial literacy; and will help produce better service outcomes through emphasising key features of the Standard such as using ‘plain English’. The Standard was developed by a working group of Indigenous groups and the Council’s trustee members and is a great example of the positive outcomes of industry and the community working together.

Balwyn High School visits Parliament House

After Question Time this afternoon I caught up with a group of Year 8 students from Balwyn High School, visiting Parliament House to learn more about the role of Government and what a politician’s life consists of. I always enjoy seeing school students from my electorate take such an interest in the political process when they are in Canberra – as evidenced by their many and varied questions. I am pictured here with the student group and leading teachers from Balwyn High School. 

Supporting Small Businesses in Kooyong

I enjoyed hearing from many small business owners in my electorate over the weekend, about the positive impact our Budget is already having on their businesses. Stopped in for some authentic Italian at Olio e Pane and then finished with a chat with Christina from artisan chocolatiers, Sisko Chocolate. Great to hear her plans to capitalise on the instant asset write-off. Highly recommend their salted caramel chocolates too.

Anzac Centenary Local Grants Program update

Today I hosted a lunch in my electorate office to thank local residents who have been involved in the Anzac Centenary Local Grants program.  The local grants committee which I chaired approved thirteen applications from local organisations and schools to hold commemorative events in our local community.  While many of the commemorations took place around Anzac Day many more are still taking place and will take place until 2018.  We were lucky enough to have students who visited Gallipoli at our lunch today – Callum Wearne from Camberwell Grammar School, Erin Donoghue from Genazzano and Megan Liew from Camberwell Girls Grammar School.  These impressive young people spoke of their individual Anzac journey sharing their experiences whilst in Gallipoli and some of the memories that they said they will cherish forever.  I am pictured below with students Tess Nolan and Alexandra Suddick who are Boroondara Literary Award winners having written poems about the Anzacs and students Erin Donoghue, Callum Wearne and Megan Liew who visited Gallipoli. 

Talking Small Business with Toscano's Kew

I was in Kew this afternoon to visit the family run fruit and vegetable business, Toscano’s and to meet with brothers Damian and Patrick Toscano. It was a good opportunity to talk small business and the budget with these inspiring young third generation businessmen.
