Last week, Peter Dutton, Leader of the Opposition, delivered his Budget-in-Reply speech stating the test for the Government was to build on the strong position inherited from the Coalition to address the cost-of-living crisis bearing down Australians.

Labor has failed this test.

The War Widows/Widowers Day was announced by the NSW Government to be held on the 19th of October 2022; a day that pays homage to the legacy of Australian War Widows NSW and founder, Mrs Jessie Vasey OBE CBE.

It was a pleasure to attend the inaugural War Widows/Widowers Day at Castle Hill RSL Club today.  Thank you to the Castle Hill RSL Sub-branch for hosting the morning tea and for all those who attended to come together and honour those widowed by war and Defence service. We gathered to acknowledge and pay tribute to their sacrifices and those of their families.

I join with Members of Parliament around the world to express my deepest concerns and condolences for lives lost as a result of recent protests in Iran, following the death of Mahsa Amini.

Australians express the strongest solidarity with the women-led movement in Iran, in their efforts to achieve equality, freedom of choice, freedom of speech, and basic human rights for women.

In particular I strongly condemn the use of violence by the Government of Iran in suppressing this movement.
