Standing up for Canberra

I am honoured to be Shadow Parliamentary Secretary for Defence

I am honoured to have been appointed Shadow Parliamentary Secretary for Defence.  I have a long standing interest in defence and strategic policy.

Canberra has a large defence community and it is threatened by the Abbott Government’s planned mass job cuts. Front line troops rely on the professionalism and dedication of public service professionals. I want to ensure that all those who work to defend this nation are given the resources and respect they deserve.
