The Morrison Government delivering for Boothby

04 Jul 2019

Ms FLINT (Boothby—Government Whip) (13:49): It was an honour to be sworn in as the member for Boothby in the 46th Parliament earlier this week. I'd like to sincerely thank my community for the opportunity to serve them again as part of the Morrison government.

I'm proud of our government's plan for a strong economy, lower taxes, guaranteed essential services, growing jobs and congestion-busting infrastructure—it's great to see the 'minister for urban infrastructure and busting congestion' here in the chamber—looking after the environment and so much more. We are already at work delivering on this agenda, with our tax cuts passing through this House earlier this week. In my community, this will make life that little bit easier for more than 75,000 hardworking taxpayers, who will keep more of the money that they've worked so hard to earn.

The Morrison government is also delivering for my local residents, with federal funding for a range of local infrastructure, sports clubs and community projects that will make a real difference to my community. One of these projects that we've just announced that we'll be partnering with the Marshall Liberal government on is for $170 million towards the Hove rail crossing grade separation project, which will bust congestion on Brighton Road for my local community. Projects like these will ensure residents can get their kids to school, get to work and get to the shops sooner and more safely. I could go on, Deputy Speaker, but as you can see we are already hard at work delivering for my community in Boothby and for the people of Australia.
