Appropriations

Before the election, Labor promised so much to the Australian people. People in my electorate are very much feeling the cost-of-living issues. They know that before the election Labor promised them a $275 reduction in power bills, cheaper mortgages and that families would be better off. But, in just 18 months, the price of food, housing, electricity and gas has risen. We’ve seen the 12 interest rate rises, and we really see that Labor’s own economic and energy policies are making inflation worse.
